2nd UK Network Science Workshop
26 October 2018 (Fri) @ University of Greenwich
Aim of the workshop
The main aim of the Workshop is to bring together people working and interested in Network Science, and to continue building a strong and diverse community that can facilitate research collaborations, funding applications, and job searches.
The workshop is organised around four talks by eminent academic researchers in the field, that will speak about a range of topics relevant to network science and its applications, and two invited talks by researchers in industry and the public sector, that will showcase the use of network science outside academia.
A special session of the workshop will be dedicated to presentations of current research by PhD students in network science, in the form of lightening talks (3-5 minutes each).
If you are a PhD student willing to showcase your exciting research in network science and its applications, just send a proposed title and a short abstract (two/three sentences) to email@example.com by October 20th.
Programme up to date on 19 October 2018.
