Event description


Aim of the workshop

There are plenty of researchers of network science in Japan, but there are few opportunities to discuss in person with leading researchers located outside Japan. This workshop aims to provide such an opportunity. This year, the workshop will be held in conjunction with the kick-off event for the Center for Computational Social Science (CCSS) of Kobe University. The guests include:

Alain Barrat, Aix Marseille Univ., Université Toulon, CNRS (France), ISI Foundation (Italy)

Ciro Cattuto, ISI Foundation (Italy)

Petter Holme, Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan)

Kimmo Kaski, Aalto University (Finland)

Note for participants: Upon registration, please make sure to put your institution name after your family name: e.g., Kobayashi (Kobe University). Note that we have different venues for day 1 and day 2.

Registration deadline: October 18th, 11:30pm
