We would like to invite you to submit a contributed talk at NetSci 2010: The International School and Conference on Network Science. NetSci 2010 will bring together leading researchers, practitioners, and teachers in network science-- analysts, modeling experts, and visualization specialists, fostering interdisciplinary communication and collaboration. The conference focuses on novel directions in network research, with applications including biology, computer and information science, sociology, political science, economics, mathematics, finance, and systems engineering.

You may submit a proposed presentation at
www.netsci2010.netSubmission requires only a short abstract.  The deadline for submissions is Feb 26, 2009. 

The event will take place between May 10 and May 14 and will consist of a two day school on Network Science at Northeastern University followed by a three day conference at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During the school, experts in the field of Network Science will offer a series of longer lectures and tutorials, introducing tools and basic findings from a variety of research areas of major interest for the study of complex networks. The aim of the school is to present the basic experimental and theoretical developments, as well as to educate the research community on standard network practices used in empirical and theoretical research. The conference, on the other hand, is dedicated to talks presenting the latest research and applications in the field.
