Statistics of Network Analysis

A two day workshop on 29-30 May 2018 at the Alan Turing Institute. This workshop is by invitation only.


Data consisting of multiple interacting entities are increasingly collected in social sciences, engineering, economics, biology and many other fields. Despite the progress made in multiple areas, there is a fundamental lack of statistical models that can characterize the many distinctive features of networked systems such as sparsity, transitivity, reciprocity and etc. with justified guarantees. This workshop aims to gather researchers working on statistical methodology of networks to exchange ideas, forge collaboration and identify open challenges ahead.
