ABOUT NETSCI 2017

NetSci 2017, the International School and Conference on Network Science, will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana from June 19 to 23, 2017. NetSci 2017 aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working in the emerging area of network science. The conference fosters interdisciplinary 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 2017 is a combination of:

  • Satellite Symposia (June 19 & 20)
  • An International School for students and non-experts (June 19 & 20)
  • A 3-day Conference (June 21-23) featuring research in a wide range of topics and in different formats, including keynote and invited talks, oral presentations, posters, and lightning talks.

 

SATELLITE SYMPOSIA: CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Following the successful tradition of this conference, NetSci 2017 will host several Satellite Symposia on June 19 and 20 as precursors of the main Conference. These satellite events are one-day or half-day meetings with a focus on a specific topic of Network Science and its Applications. All subjects are welcome, but we would specifically support proposals on themes such as: Multilayer, Interdependent and/or Temporal Networks, Critical Infrastructures, Financial Networks, Biological Networks, Brain Networks, and Computational Social Sciences. Details for proposals, due December 15, can be found here: http://netsci2017.net/call/satellites

 

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

To submit an abstract for an a oral presentation (15 mins, with 5 minute Q&A), lightning talk (5 mins), or poster, please prepare a one-page abstract including one mandatory descriptive figure and caption plus three keywords. The deadline for submission is Friday, January 15, 2017, with decisions issued by March 1.

ERDÖS–RÉNYI PRIZE 

The Erdös–Rényi Prize is awarded each year to a selected young scientist (under 40 years old on the day of the nomination deadline) for their achievements in research activities in the area of network science, broadly construed. While the achievements can be both theoretical and experimental, the prize is aimed at emphasizing outstanding contributions relevant to the interdisciplinary progress of network science. Candidate dossiers are due March 1, 2017 and self-nominations are not accepted. Details can be found at: http://netsci2017.net/erdos-renyi.
