***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Since so many of you inquired, let me give you a bit more information about this. 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: http://vw.indiana.edu/netsci06 contains much more information, which will be updated as more of the details are finalized. We hope that many of you are interested and will attend! SW *********************** 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 collaboration. 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. _____________________________________________________________________ SOCNET is a service of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers (http://www.insna.org).
