Dear socnetters,

Sorry for multiple postings. This is a reminder, deadline is approaching.



Call for participation
Mediterranean School of Complex Networks
In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
The goal of the 1st Mediterranean School of Complex Networks will be twofold:

  • Provide a theoretical background to PhD students and young researchers in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science.
  • Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants.

For this reason, the program will involve lectures from experts in different fields (social science, game theory, biology, neuroscience, etc) for 50% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to:
  • Flash talks given by attendants, followed by debates;
  • Thematic round tables involving lecturers and attendants.
