Coordinates: The International School for Advanced Studies (Italian: Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati, SISSA) is an international, state supported, post graduate teaching and research institute with a special statute, located in Trieste, Italy.
Instituted in 1978, SISSA's aim is to promote science and knowledge, particularly in the areas of Condensed Matter, Biophysics, Mathematics, Neuroscience and Physics. Each year about 40 Ph.D. students are admitted to SISSA based on their scientific qualifications. SISSA also runs, in collaboration with the University of Trieste, a master programme (Laurea magistrale) in mathematics.
SISSA has the following established sectors:
In addition, there is the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Advanced Studies (ILAS)
SISSA enjoys special teaching and scientific links with the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology and the Elettra (Synchrotron Light Laboratory). SISSA is an essential component of the Trieste System, the grouping of national and international scientific institutes that make Trieste the "City of Science."
The School provides the following services to students and members of other scientific institutions in the Trieste area:
In 1986 SISSA was endowed with an Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Natural and Human Sciences, which has the task of exploring new research fields and links between scientific disciplines. It has the autonomy of a department and is organised in various research sectors. It currently offers a Master’s Degree in Scientific Communication and a Master's Degree in Digital Science Journalism.
Since July 13, 2010 the campus has been located near Opicina, in the site of the former Santorio Santorio center for pneumology (Ospedale Pneumologico Santorio Santorio), where it is easily accessible by Opicina tramway.
Up to 2010 SISSA administrative offices and all research sectors were located near the Miramare Park, about 10 kilometres from the city of Trieste. The Miramare scientific still hosts the ICTP (International Center for Theoretical Physics) and the Department of Theoretical Physics of the University of Trieste.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
