Topic: Network Modeling
Meeting dates: February 4-6, 2019
Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
This tutorial introduced students and interested faculty to the topic of complex networks. The field has grown tremendously over the last 20 years and network science has found numerous applications to fields such as biology, ecology, social sciences, physical sciences, computer science, technology, and urban planning. The tutorial reviewed in detail the main ideas and methods in network science with emphasis on both conceptual aspects and real-world applications. Hands-on activities helped the audience familiarize themselves with practical ways to potentially incorporate network analysis in their own research. No prior knowledge of networks or programming was required.
The tutorial was appropriate for interested faculty, post-docs, and graduate students of any discipline.Descriptive Flyer
