Network Science Thematic Semester

Lyon MAY 11-13, 2016 — Lyon JUNE 20-22, 2016 — Marseille JULY 11-13, 2016


The semester Network Science is organized by the project team DANTE (Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard (Lyon 1), CNRS, Laboratoire de l’Informatique du Parallélisme — UMR5668), the SiSyPhe team (Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard (Lyon 1), CNRS, Laboratoire de Physique — UMR5672), the Centre de Physique Théorique — UMR-7332, the Excellence Laboratory MILYON — Mathematics and Fundamental Computer Science in Lyon and the Institute of Scientific Interchange — (ISI).

This program intends to cover both the basics of and recent advances in Network Science. These questions, which are in the focus of contemporary network science, set the scope of the actual proposal where we aim to bring together world-known experts from the fields of mathematics, physics, signal processing, computer science, social science, epidemiology and linguistic to discuss and enhance our understanding about the interaction between the structure, evolution, and coupled dynamical processes of complex networks.

It is meant for a large audience, from graduate students to experts in the subject.

Note that at the end of the semester, the 26th IUPAP International conference on Statistical Physics, Statphys 26 will take place in Lyon from July, 18th to 22nd. The conference will cover a wide range of topics including traditional aspects of statistical mechanics, such as applications to hard and soft condensed matter, phase transitions, disordered systems and non-equilibrium physics, as well as emergent and modern applications such as turbulence, signal processing, complex systems and mathematics.
