Call for Participation ISSCN 2nd International Summer School on Complex Networks

ISSCN 2nd International Summer School on Complex Networks

Bertinoro, Italy July 11-15 2016

Complex networks are an emerging and powerful computational tool in the
physical, biological and social sciences. They aim is to capture the
structural properties of data represented as graphs or networks,
providing ways of characterising both the static and dynamic facets of
network structure. The topic draws on ideas from graph theory,
statistical physics and dynamic systems theory. Applications include
communication networks, epidemiology, transportation, social networks
and ecology.
The aim in the Summer School is to provide an overview of both the
foundations and state of the art in the field. Lectures will be
presented by intellectual leaders in the field, and there will be an
opportunity to interact closely with them during the school. The school
will be held in the Bertinoro Residential Centre of the University of
Bologna, which is situated in beautiful hills between Ravenna and Bologna.
The summer school is aimed at PhD students, and younger postdocs or RA's
working in the complex networks area. It will run for 5 days with
lectures in the mornings and afternoons, and the school fee includes
residential accommodation and meals at the residential centre.
