NetSci 2013: Venue and Dates

It’s time to get out your pencils and mark your 2013 calendars:

NetSci 2013 will take place June 3rd – 7th at the new The Royal Library (the Black Diamond) in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Along with fellow organizing committee members Petter Holme, Joachim Mathiesen, and Alan Mislove, I’m excited to announce that we’ve secured an incredible venue for NetSci 2013.

In order to provide non-Copenhageners with a sense of how amazing this space is going to be, I’ve included a few photos:

And the interior is spectacular as well:

And the venue is, of course, just the beginning – we have many more pleasant surprises planned for NetSci 2013. Stay tuned for updates.

Conference: Applications of Network Theory

Just a quick advertisement for an exciting European conference co-organized by my fellow NetSci 2013 organizer Petter Holme. It takes place in Stockholm, Sweden in early April. The speaker line-up looks pretty good, despite the fact that they invited me [1].

Description: The main idea is to convene key world-class researchers on complex networks and let them interact freely with the Nordic groups interested in the area. The program will be divided into four thematic areas: biological networks, general network theory, technological networks, and social networks. Many of the intended participants are interested in several of these points. Much progress in network theory has been made by analogies from different fields, and complex-network researchers value this, therefore we believe such a schedule will not seem unattractive to participants. In addition to the regular schedule during the Nordita program, of one or two talks per day, we will arrange a more intense, three day workshop April 7-9. One purpose of this workshop, is to attract researchers not able to stay the extended time required by the program.

This workshop is being organized as part of a long-program on networks at NORDITA.

Registration deadline: 15 March 2011 or when 70 participants have registered.
