This Workshop and Conference was funded by NSF, and provides funds for
     expenses of about twenty graduate students to attend all two weeks.
The tutorials during the first week will be given by about 15
researchers in the field,
      experts from statistics, mathematics, physics, and the social and
      behavioral sciences.

The website:
contains much more information,   which will be updated as more of

     are finalized.

We hope that many of  you are interested and will attend!



The International Workshop and Conference on Network Science will bring
together leading researchers and practitioners in network science -
analysts, modeling experts, and visualization specialists with graduate
students from many different research areas for interdisciplinary
communication and

The primary objective of the Workshop/Conference is to facilitate
interactions between social and behavioral scientists and the many other
disciplines interested in and utilizing network science.

The event will be held over a two week period at Indiana University,
Bloomington, Indiana, during May 2006.  The first week, the Workshop,
will feature
tutorials (which present basic, educational material) focusing on a
variety of network science
research areas. It aims to present and support experimental,
theoretical and applied
network research by educating the research community on standard
network data, tools,
and powerful computational resources. The Conference comprises talks
by social and
behavioral scientists, information scientists, biologists,
statistical physicists,
mathematicians and statisticians.

The workshop and conference is funded by the National Science
Foundation, with financial assistance from Indiana University and
Notre Dame University.
