Conference: Applications of Network Theory

A European conference, held in Sweden in early April, on applications of network theory. The speaker line-up looks pretty good, despite the fact that they invited me. I expect this will be one of the better networks meetings of the year.

Description: The main idea is to convene key world-class researchers on complex networks and let them interact freely with the Nordic groups interested in the area. The program will be divided into four thematic areas: biological networks, general network theory, technological networks, and social networks. Many of the intended participants are interested in several of these points. Much progress in network theory has been made by analogies from different fields, and complex-network researchers value this, therefore we believe such a schedule will not seem unattractive to participants. In addition to the regular schedule during the Nordita program, of one or two talks per day, we will arrange a more intense, three day workshop April 7-9. One purpose of this workshop, is to attract researchers not able to stay the extended time required by the program.

This workshop is being organized as part of a long-program on networks at NORDITA.

Registration deadline: 15 March 2011 or when 70 participants have registered.

That definitely looks good---much better than NetSci!

I'll be at SAMSI then or else I'd seriously consider going. Maybe my students want to go. :)

That's an impressive group of panelists for the upcoming conference on applications of network theory. I'm a huge fan and admirer of Jukka-Pekka Onnela from Harvard.
