UMD/NIST Network Science Symposium
Friday, January 24, 2014
8:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
2117 Computer Science Instructional Center (CSIC)
For More Information:
Michelle Girvan

The goal of this joint symposium is to bring together researchers who approach network science problems from the perspectives of different fields, such as computer science, physics, engineering, biology, and the social sciences. Our aim is to facilitate idea exchange between individuals whose research interests overlap because they involve complex networks, but who otherwise might not have the opportunity to interact. The symposium will consist of nine short talks from researchers at UMD and NIST.

Following the morning presentations, there will be a lunch for participants in the rotunda of the nearby Kim Engineering Building.

Please go to to register for this event.  (Registration deadline January 20th, 2014).
