Scope: Networks (or graphs) arise as powerful abstract models for characterizing a multitude of real-life biological, social, communication and many other systems, mapping a set of entities and the relationships between them. Networks are virtually everywhere and mining information from them is a crucial task with an inherent multidisciplinary impact. This school is a research training event geared precisely towards the science of networks and it offers a set of lectures and tutorials given by worldwide leading experts from the academia. The attendees are expected to gain insight into the theory, methods and applications of network science, by being exposed to some the most important problems and their state-of-art solutions, thus improving their vision on the associated research challenges. The school's main intended target audience are PhD students and young researchers, but we welcome anyone interested in the field.
"Networks are important because if we don’t understand networks, we can’t understand how markets function, organizations solve problems, or how societies change"
