  • Testimonials
    The CNWW allowed me to establish bonds with my peers in network science from around the globe. Since the workshop, I have been connecting with them and I think these could become lasting friendships that will foster collaboration and a broader, more diverse understanding of network science through casual discussion.

    Sam Rosenblatt
    University of Vermont


    The most engaging workshop I have ever attended! The organizers put great effort in encouraging a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment where ideas about complex networks could be explored.

    Niall Keleher
    U.C. Berkeley


    The multiple disciplines represented by all the participants, the knowledgeable and highly approachable lecturers and mentors, the multicultural atmosphere and the historical location, the scientific content of the lectures, the imaginative research ideas, and the intense collaborative work that emerges during this event make CNWW one of most satisfying workshops that I have ever attended.

    José R. Nicolás-Carlock
    National Autonomous University of Mexico


    CNWW was the perfect scholarly vacation. I learned so much, made new friends, experienced a beautiful city, and had a safe and supportive environment to take intellectual risks beyond what my typical responsibilities allow. I truly learned something from every single person I met at CNWW, and each welcomed me as someone from whom they could learn as well. I returned exhausted and exhilarated, brimming new knowledge and perspectives and excited for the cross-disciplinary connections I made with scholars from around the world. I would highly recommend participation in CNWW; the experience made me a better scholar and brought renewed vigor to my work. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to participate.

    Sarah Shugars
    Network Science Institute, Northeastern University


    CNWW was a think tank, a refreshing intellectual experience that got me thinking about interesting topics that I otherwise have no time to think of in my daily work-life.
