Edinburgh University Workshop on Complex Networks

Tom Underwood and Victor Hernandez-Urbina

Informatics Forum

Key Speakers:
Vincenzo Nicosia, Desmond Higham, Martin Evans, Richard Blythe, Bartlomiej Waclaw, Rik Sarkar, Matthias Hennig, Michael Herrmann, Vincent Danos

Complex networks are ubiquitous. For example, the Internet, the brain, social networks, and the pathways of chemical interactions within living cells can all be described as complex networks. Hence research into complex networks is important and far-reaching. Such research is being conducted in both the School of Informatics and the School of Physics and Astronomy. However, the research conducted in each school seems somewhat disjointed. The primary aim of this workshop is to facilitate collaboration between these two groups. The workshop will consist of a series of presentations given by speakers predominantly drawn from both schools, and a combined drinks reception and poster session.
