Engineering Applications of Networks Workshop

November 1 (Wed) 2017 @ University of Bristol

Aim of the workshop

Networks (as equivalent to graph theory in mathematics) provide a useful language for describing complex systems, where structure of connection among different interacting entities constituting a system is important. Various toolboxes, mathematical/theoretical and computational, to clarify complex networks, from algorithms to detect particular structure of networks to methods and indices with which to understand dynamics on and of networks, have been developed particularly in the past two decades. In this workshop, we focus on engineering applications of networks. We will bring together presentations ranging from relatively theoretical ones (related to enginnering theory/applications; e.g. control) to ones on practical engineering problems (e.g., project management), and discuss more of potentials of network science in engineering domains.
