***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** SOCnetters, Below is the announcement for a workshop I am co-organizing with folks at University of Nottingham. It's on theory and applications of threshold networks. ----- Mason ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- First announcement Threshold Networks July 22 - 24, 2019 Nottingham, UK https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.nottingham.ac.uk_conference_fac-2Dsci_maths-2Dsci_threshold-2Dnetworks_&d=DwIDaQ&c=pZJPUDQ3SB9JplYbifm4nt2lEVG5pWx2KikqINpWlZM&r=uXI5O6HThk1ULkPyaT6h2Ws3RKNKSY__GQ4DuS9UHhs&m=6LacLQbMoWuNo70uSf30iX8CD-YICMPAvX3KRKs4mXQ&s=w2F8cmxB1UH1-IJLqxa-YWVdI0a2XwKCfjgsDS3FA2g&e= This workshop will bring together a community of people interested in both networks and dynamics, with an eye to both mathematical tractability and applications to biology, engineering, physics, and the social sciences. The emphasis will be on ?thresholds? in their broadest sense as exemplified by node dynamics or interactions that are described by simple, yet possibly non-smooth or discontinuous switch-like processes. The workshop will cover both theory and applications. The meeting will have no parallel sessions, and it is expected to involve around 60 participants (with 12 main speakers) and contributed poster presentations. Speakers: Alex Arenas, Universidad Rovira i Virgili, Spain Mario Di Bernardo, University of Bristol, UK Ginestra Bianconi, Queen Mary University of London, UK Des Higham, University of Strathclyde, UK Renaud Lambiotte, University of Oxford, UK Naoki Masuda, University of Bristol, UK Peter Mucha, University of North Carolina, USA Sarah Muldoon, University at Buffalo, USA Yamir Moreno, University of Zaragoza, Spain Important dates Registration deadline: 1st June 2019 Poster abstract submission deadline: 12th April 2019. Notification of acceptance: 1st May 2019 The registration fee for the conference is 100.00 GBP. A ?Tutorial Day? (covering key concepts in dynamical systems and network science) will also take place prior to the meeting (on July 21). Some financial assistance may be available to assist graduate students who attend both the training workshop and the conference.
