Oxford-Warwick-Edinburgh Network Science

15 February 2021

Organisers: Robert MacKay, Peter Grindrod (Oxford), Des Higham (Edinburgh)

An afternoon workshop to highlight recent results in network science from groups in Oxford, Warwick and Edinburgh. It will run online, from 13.30 to 18.00.

Speakers: Mihai Cucuringu, Renaud Lambiotte, Alexandre Bovet, Vidit Nanda (Oxford); Xue Gong, Henry-Louis de Kergorlay (Edinburgh); Choudhry Shuaib, Marya Bazzi, Bazil Sansom (Warwick). Perspectives will be given by each of the organisers.

The event will be hosted on Zoom by ICMS, to whom we are most grateful.

All are welcome to attend. Please register here and you will be emailed a link on the day.
