Summer School on Network Science

May 20-24, 27-31, 2013

University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC 29208

Network science is a fast expanding interdisciplinary field, which studies complex networks at the interface of mathematics, statistics, computer science, materials science, physics, biology, and social sciences. The active research areas in this emerging field include network modeling and inference, flows on networks, network evolution, data mining and artificial intelligence, structural and dynamic modeling of networks in materials, and social and biological systems with applications to defense and homeland security. The analysis of network data and structures has become a major endeavor across the sciences and engineering.

This Summer School is designed to bring network science closer to the USC community by bringing leaders of this field to lecture on campus. Four keynote speakers will each deliver five tutorial lectures over the course of two weeks.

  • Week 1 (May 20 - 24): will focus on mathematical approaches to network science problems.
  • Week 2 (May 27 - 31): will focus on networks in engineering, computer science, social science and biology.

Additional talks will be presented by nationally recognized contributors. Sessions allocated to small group discussions and collaborative interactions will be encouraged. For a list of speakers with their abstracts, please visit List of Speakers.

We invite graduate students and faculty from USC and from other schools to participate in this event. If you would like to attend this Summer School, please register online by May 10, 2013.

This Summer School is made possible by a generous "Institute for Visiting Scholars" grant from the Office of the Provost, University of South Carolina. Additional support is provided by the Interdisciplinary Mathematics Institute at USC.
