ISI Foundation joins NetSci 2020

ISI Foundation is joining NetSci 2020, the flagship conference of the Network Science Society, taking place online from 17 to 25 September, with a strong participation in satellite symposiums and main conference talks. Along with the co-organization of  the workshops NetSci4SDGs and Toponets, many researchers will be involved in other satellites and in the programme of the main conference.

Thursday 17th
Yamir Moreno, Giovanni Petri and Laetitia Gauvin will join satellite HONS 2020: Moreno and Petri will participate the panel discussion “Comparing  Simplicial Complexes, Hypergraphs, and Temporal Networks as representations of higher order interactions” (13.15), while Laetitia  Gauvin will give a talk about “Network embedding and spreading process” (14.15).

Friday 18th
Giovanni Petri will join Multilayers and Beyond 2020, with the talk “On the topological complexity of decision boundaries of neural networks” (17.10).
