We are glad to announce the call for the
of the summer school that we will organize this year.
From 2022 the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks
and the International School of Informatics and Dynamics in Complex Networks have joined their forces into a single event.
The new board of directors include, in alphabetic order:
Prof. Alex Arenas (URV, Spain), Prof. Vincenza Carchiolo (UniCT, Italy), Prof. Manlio De Domenico (UniPD, Italy), Prof. Mattia Frasca (UniCT, Italy) and Prof. Giuseppe Mangioni (UniCT, Italy)
Please, feel free to redistribute among potential attendants
and accept our apologies in advance if you receive this email more than once.
Call for participation
School of Complex Networks
25 Jun - 30 July 2023
In the last decade, network theory has been revealed
to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved in. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economics, to cite just some of them,
showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
Given the success of the past editions (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018-2019-2022)
of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for applications to the
8th Edition in 2023.
If you are curious about the past editions, you can find more information in the new "From the School" section of the
Journal of Complex Networks:
The goal of this school is twofold:
Provide a theoretical background
to students (Master, PhD) and young researchers in the field, with particular attention
to current trends in Network Science;
Promote philosophical and
scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants.
For this reason, the program will involve lectures from
experts in different fields (social science, game theory, biology, physics, etc) for 70% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to student activities (including talks, debates, "social network games").
