Network Frontier Workshop 2013; Evanston, Illinois; December 4-6 2013

Project: Research project

Project Details


The proposed workshop will bring together a diverse group of experts in complementary areas
of network science, dynamical systems, and complex systems. The workshop participants will
be comprised of experts both in theory and applications as well as students and postdoctoral
researchers. There will be a substantial emphasis to topics that cut across disciplinary
boundaries. This will be the second edition of this workshop series, and it is expected to mirror
the success of the first edition, held at Northwestern University in December 2011.
Intellectual merit of the proposed activity: The workshop speakers will report on recent
results in the area of network science and related applications. They will in addition participate
in discussion about future directions that are likely to lead to transformative research.
Participants will become aware of the latest results in their respective subfields, and will also be
able to discuss with other experts in an interdisciplinary environment.
Broader impacts of the proposed activity: Because of the cross-disciplinary nature of the
workshop, experts will become aware of the latest developments in fields related to but different
from their own. This is expected to generate new insights and stimulate new interdisciplinary
collaborations. In addition, the workshop will involve activities jointly organized with the
Northwestern SIAM Student Chapter, which will include tutorials by experts, presentations by
students and postdoctoral researchers, and discussions about career opportunities. The
inclusion of early-career researchers will also help promote the transfer of this expertise to the
next generation of engineers, mathematicians, and physicists.
