ABOUT NETSCI 2019

NetSci 2019 is the flagship conference of the Network Science Society, which aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working in the emerging research area of network science. The NetSci conference fosters multi-disciplinary communication and collaboration in network science research across computer and information sciences, physics, mathematics, statistics, the life sciences, neuroscience, environmental sciences, social sciences, finance and business, arts and design.
NetSci 2019 will be a combination of:

  • An International School for students and non-experts
  • Satellite Symposia
  • A 3-day Conference featuring research in a wide range of topics and in different formats, including keynote and invited talks, oral presentations, posters, and lightning talks.
  • Adjacent activities include pre-conference hackathons and meetups!
