> Dear Colleague,
>
> We are writing to ask for your help on a U.S. National Research Council
> (NRC) study on "Network Science" that we re serving on.  The goal of
> the
> study is to describe the current state of the art in network science
> and
> make recommendations that can be used to guide decisions about future
> directions in this area within the federal government.  The study has a
> broad charter, including understanding the connections between
> engineering, biological, social, financial and other network phenomena.
> The initial funding for this study comes from the Department of
> Defense,
> but the National Research Council (as part of the independent National
> Academies of Science) believes that our report will have a significant
> impact on the entire field, so we are especially interested in
> obtaining a
> wide range of views.
>
> To help us get a mapping of the current activities in the field, we
> have
> put together a short web-based survey that we are asking researchers in
> the field to fill out.  The survey should only take a short while
> (10-15
> minutes) to complete and would be a great help in making sure that we
> understand the current work that is going on and some of the important
> research directions that should be pursued.
>
> The survey is available at
>
>    http://www8.nationalacademies.org/survey/deps/networksci2.htm
>
> I hope that you can help out on this study by taking the survey soon,
> as
> we are beginning some initial analysis this month.
>
> We also invite you to forward this invitation to other network science
> and
> related researchers.

> With appreciation,
