Call for satellite symposia, NetSci 2016

(This is just a preview of what will appear on the official website later.)

We would like to draw to your attention a call for satellite symposia for the International School and Conference on Network Science, NetSci2016, to be held at the K Hotel, Seoul, Korea, from May 30 to June 3, 2016.

Following the successful tradition of previous conferences, NetSci2016 will host a number of satellite symposia on May 30 and 31 as starters of the main conference.

These satellite events are shorter (one day or half a day) meetings with a focus on a specific topic of network science and its applications. All subjects are welcome, but we would specifically support proposals on themes like: data-driven network science, ecological networks, multilayer, interdependent or temporal networks, critical infrastructure, and computational social science. Organizers of a satellite will be given one fully waived registration fee for NetSci2016 that could be used to cover the participation of either an invited speaker to the satellite or for any other participant or organizer.

How to submit proposals: We invite you to submit a proposal for a satellite symposium including title, topic (brief summary of 1-2 pages) and format (number of speakers, invited vs. contributed, number of participants, length, preliminary program), and a preliminary list of speakers (also indicating whether they have been contacted and/or whether they have accepted).

Submit proposals (single PDF File) by email to: holme@skku.edu
