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.

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.
