ISSCN 2nd International Summer School on Complex Networks

Bertinoro, Italy July 11-15 2016

Complex networks are an emerging and powerful computational tool in the 
physical, biological and social sciences. They aim is to capture the 
structural properties of data represented as graphs or networks, 
providing ways of characterising both the static and dynamic facets of 
network structure. The topic draws on ideas from graph theory,
statistical physics and dynamic systems theory. Applications include 
communication networks, epidemiology, transportation, social networks 
and ecology.
The aim in the Summer School is to provide an overview of both the 
foundations and state of the art in the field. Lectures will be 
presented by intellectual leaders in the field, and there will be an 
opportunity to interact closely with them during the school. The school 
will be held in the Bertinoro Residential Centre of the University of 
Bologna, which is situated in beautiful hills between Ravenna and Bologna.
The summer school is aimed at PhD students, and younger postdocs or RA's 
working in the complex networks area. It will run for 5 days with 
lectures in the mornings and afternoons, and the school fee includes 
residential accommodation and meals at the residential centre.
