  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (all of them)

    Phew. There’s only one day to go before the call for abstracts closes, but with a burst of posts in the last couple of days, I finally managed to complete the list of 9 reasons to visit NetSci this year. This post summarizes and lists all 9 reasons (although it’d be great if you could […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 9)

    The 9th and final reason is an obvious one (but after all, probably still the best reason for attending the conference). And don’t forget that the call for abstracts closes tomorrow! So head over and submit an abstract (if you haven’t done so already). Reason 9: Great list of invited speakers This year we’ve managed […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 8)

    We’re nearing the end of the list of reasons to go to NetSci (and the call for abstracts ends this friday, so go and submit something!). This 8th reason is not so much a specific reason to go to Copenhagen. Rather, it is an example of how we’ve tried to rethink & rework every aspect […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 7)

    When I started the “Nine reasons” series of posts, I had planned a single Letterman top-ten style “silly” reason. I’d forgotten, however, that the general NetSci audience is a clever bunch, so I was a little bit disappointed (but also impressed) when I posted “Reason 1”, and Mason Porter saw that one coming a mile […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 6)

    In today’s list of reasons that you should head over to the NetSci website and submit an abstract right away (the deadline is this friday people!), we change focus away from the academic reasons and turn our attention to the culinary reasons. Reason 6: The NetSci dinner Copenhagen is know for food. The world’s best […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 5)

    Now that the weekend is over, it’s back to the reasons I think you should head straight over to the NetSci 2013 website and submit an abstract. The call ends on Friday, so there’s no time to waste. Reason 5: Amazing list of satellite workshops This year, the number of satellite workshops has increased significantly, […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 4)

    With only one week left for submissions, the list of reasons to visit NetSci continues. This time announcing an exciting event that’s not even on the conference site yet. Reason 4: Publisher Session On Thursday night we’re having a special publisher session. The idea is to give editors a chance to speak to authors about their […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 3)

    Wow. With all those superlatives in use for reason 1 and reason 2, I’m beginning to worry that the excitement of those posts might have the whole set of “Reasons to go to NetSci” posts peaking too soon. But we have so many good reasons to go – and only a few days left before […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 2)

    Following up on past promises, here’s reason two that I think NetSci 2013 is going to excellent. Reason 2: The NetSci School This year, the NetSci school is going to be something special. So even if you’re not yet a bona fide network science insider who’s wise to inside jokes about Zachary’s Karate Club, NetSci 2013 […]

  • NetSci 2013: Nine reasons to go (Reason 1)

    Ok, so this June we’re having the NetSci conference right here in Copenhagen. Registration is now open and the call for paper closes on March 15th. So in these last few days leading up to that deadline, I’m going to list some of what I think are the main reasons that you should dust off […]
