LANET 2017

1ST LATIN AMERICAN CONFERENCE ON COMPLEX NETWORKS,

25-29 SEPTEMBER 2017, PUEBLA, MEXICO.

http://www.lanetconference.org/

(INCLUDES THE LANET SCHOOL ON FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS OF NETWORK
SCIENCE)

LANET 2017

DESCRIPTION

The aim of LANET is to provide with a forum to join all scientists who are
somehow related to the research on Network Science in Latin America.

The rapid growth of the field of Network Science in the last two decades
has manifested in the form of schools, workshops and conferences in Latin
America. However, the creation of LANET as a stable and periodic forum
devoted to Network Science will further spur the formation of research
groups interested in the field and help to establish it as a discipline
across Latin American Universities and Research Institutions.

The first edition will be organized by the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma
de Puebla (Puebla, México) and, tentatively, we plan LANET to have a
periodicity of two years with different locations in Latin America.

1ST LANET INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

We have taken the advantage of having together the best scientists working
on Network Science and organized a one-day School on Fundamentals and
Applications of Network Science. The school will be held at the Conference
location one day before its beginning, i.e. 25th September. If you want to
attend the School, please, contact the organization at
[log in to unmask] before 1st May. Also note that an additional
