ISI Foundation at NetSci 2018!

From 11 to 15 June, Paris is hosting NetSci 2018 – International School and Conference on Network Science. NetSci is the flagship conference of the Network Science Society and it brings together leading researchers and practitioners working in the emerging area of network science. The conference fosters interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in network research across computer and information sciences, physics, mathematics, statistics, the life sciences, neuroscience, environmental sciences, social sciences, finance and business, arts and design.

NetSci 2018 will be a combination of an International School (June 11-12), Satellite Symposia (June 11-12) and a 3-day Conference (June 13-15), and ISI Foundation will participate with many researchers, both included in the program committees and scheduled in the talks, oral presentations, satellite meetings and poster sessions.

In detail:

ISI Scientific Director Ciro Cattuto is among the International School Speakers, talking about “Network science and machine learning”, June 11 at 9.00. He is also co-organizing the satellite Machine Learning in Network Science (June 12, starting at 9.00). ISI Research Leader and NetSci 2018 Web and Social Media Chair Michele Tizzoni is co-organizing Netdely 2018 – Networks in Disease Ecology, a satellite meeting on modeling interacting pathogens, multiple host layers and evolution (June 11, starting at 14.15). He will also talk about “Media coverage and public awareness in the United States during the 2016 Zika epidemic” (June 11, 9.00) at the satellite Contagion & Networks, along with ISI Research Laura Ozella (“Close encounters between infants and household members measured through wearable proximity sensors”, June 11, 12.30). Ozella will also join the satellite Integration of empirical data in network epidemiology with a talk about “Animal social networks relevant to disease transmission among free-roaming dogs in Chad” (June 12, 14.41), while ISI Research Leader Laetitia Gauvin will participate the BlockNet 2018 satellite meeting with the talk “Analysis ot the Bitcoin blockchain: Socio-economic factors behind the adoption” (June 11, 11.20).

During the conference (that is co-chaired by ISI Senior Researcher Alain Barrat), ISI Research Leader and NetSci 2018 program committee chair Yamir Moreno will give a talk about “Biodiversity and structural stability of multilayer ecological networks”, June 13 at 12.15. The same day are scheduled talks by ISI Research Leader Giovanni Petri (“Simplicial activity driven model: how temporal group structure affects dynamics”, 12.00), ISI Researcher Esther Ibanez Marcelo (“Topological features of functional equivalence between imagery and perception, 12.15; she will also bring the poster “A homology based approach to robustness of biological networks”) and ISI Researcher Tiago De Paula Peixoto (“Nonparametric weighted stochastic block models”, 12.30). Friday 15 at 14.45, ISI Junior Researcher Giulia Lerda will give a talk about “Simplicial degree matrices: a local connectivity measure for simplicial complexes”.
