Québec City, Québec, December 15-21, 2018

The Complex Networks Winter Workshop (CNWW) is a week-long international school that offers an extraordinary opportunity for participants to engage in rigorous transdisciplinary complexity science research alongside some of the top researchers in the field of networks. The CNWW is designed for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professionals. The lectures will present open problems and recent advances in the field of complex networks. Participants of this program will collaborate in small transdisciplinary research groups involving other participants as well as faculty. All course lectures will be given in English.

The CNWW is a collaboration between the University of Vermont Complex Systems Center, the Sentinel North Program of the Université Laval and the Network Science Institute of the Northeastern University.

The call for applications is open until 6 August 2018.

Up to 40 international graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and professionals from different disciplines will be accepted.

Participants of this program will collaborate in small transdisciplinary research groups involving other participants as well as faculty. All course lectures will be given in English.

    The CNWW will focus on the themes detailed below and promote a lively, versatile and dynamic approach that includes lectures and a strong hands-on component framed by experts from a variety of disciplines.

    -Introduction to Network Theory
    -Random Networks
    -Social, Ecological, Technological Networks
    -Epidemiological Networks
    -Big Data and Complex Networks
    -Thematic Lectures: Network Perspective on Northern Complex Systems

    The training will also allow the development of interpersonal skills such as networking and international scientific collaboration, creativity and communication in a transdisciplinary research context.
