School of Complex Networks
31 Aug - 6 Sep 2019
In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect
instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the
dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of
applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology,
transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed
that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many
Given the success of the past editions (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018) of
the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for
applications to the Sixth Edition in 2019. If you are curious about
the last edition, you can find more information in the new "From the
School" section of the Journal of Complex Networks: https://doi.org/10.1093/comnet/cny035
The goal of this school is twofold:
- Provide a theoretical background to
students (Master, PhD) and young researchers in the field,
with particular attention to current trends in Network
- Promote philosophical and
scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers
For this reason, the program will involve lectures from experts
in different fields (social science, game theory, biology,
physics, etc) for 70% of the duration of the school. The remaining
time will be dedicated to student activities (including talks,
debates, "social network games").
