Practical Applications of Network Science 2021

Online Event

RMIT University and Victoria University

Supported and funded by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI)

A two-day online workshop on the theory and practical applications of network science to solve today's challenges.

About this workshop

Diverse applications such as the study of proteins in biology, finding unusual patterns in social networks, optimisation of transportation networks and the study of complex computer networks use the theories and algorithms in Network Science.

This two-day workshop will include:

1. Two skill building tutorial sessions using the software environment R. The workshops will start at an introductory level and proceed to working with real-world applications.

2. A series of invited talks including leading researchers on how they used network science in the problems they care about.

3. Bringing together diverse researchers working on the common theme of network science in facilitated networking sessions.

The goal of this event is to introduce researchers to network science and its applications.
