NetSci 2017, the International School and Conference on Network Science,
will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana from June 19 to 23, 2017. NetSci 2017
aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working in the
emerging area of network science. The conference fosters interdisciplinary
communication and collaboration in network science research across computer
and information sciences, physics, mathematics, statistics, the life
sciences, neuroscience, environmental sciences, social sciences, finance
and business, arts and design.

NetSci 2017 is a combination of:

- Satellite Symposia (June 19 & 20)

- An International School for students and non-experts (June 19 & 20)

- A 3-day Conference (June 21-23) featuring research in a wide range of
topics and in different formats, including keynote and invited talks, oral
presentations, posters, and lightning talks.


Following the successful tradition of this conference, NetSci 2017 will
host several Satellite Symposia on June 19 and 20 as precursors of the main
Conference. These satellite events are one-day or half-day meetings with a
focus on a specific topic of Network Science and its Applications. All
subjects are welcome, but we would specifically support proposals on themes
such as: Multilayer, Interdependent and/or Temporal Networks, Critical
Infrastructures, Financial Networks, Biological Networks, Brain Networks,
and Computational Social Sciences. Details for proposals, due December 15,
can be found here:


To submit an abstract for an a oral presentation (15 mins, with 5 minute
Q&A), lightning talk (5 mins), or poster, please prepare a one-page
abstract including one mandatory descriptive figure and caption plus three
keywords. The deadline for submission is Friday, January 15, 2017, with
decisions issued by March 1. The abstract submission portal will be live on
November 1, and will be available here:
You must use one of the two provided templates for preparing your abstract,
also available at that page.


The Erdös–Rényi Prize is awarded each year to a selected young scientist
(under 40 years old on the day of the nomination deadline) for their
achievements in research activities in the area of network science, broadly
construed. While the achievements can be both theoretical and experimental,
the prize is aimed at emphasizing outstanding contributions relevant to the
interdisciplinary progress of network science. Candidate dossiers are due
March 1, 2017 and self-nominations are not accepted. Details can be found
