Network Science Workshop and Conference

Bloomington, IN, USA

May 16-20 and May 22-25, 2006

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 by 15 invited researchers from statistics,  
mathematics, physics, and the social and behavioral, and information  
sciences. 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 invited talks by social and behavioral  
scientists, information scientists, biologists, statistical  
physicists, mathematicians and statisticians. The primary objective  
of the Workshop/Conference is to facilitate interactions between the  
many different disciplines interested in and utilizing network science.

Thanks to NSF funding the registration fee for both weeks is $120  
only. NSF and other funding will also provide support for about  
twenty graduate students to attend both weeks.
If you would like to present your research as a talk or poster at the  
Conference, please submit a 2-page abstract.
