THE PIIK: 2nd Symposium on Network Science



On Tuesday 13th of March 2018, Prof. Dr. Claudio Tessone and the URPP Social Networks will host the Second Swiss Symposium on Network Science in Zurich.

The goal of the symposium is to bring together the Swiss research groups that work on network-related research areas, in order to share ideas with a highly-competent audience, foster the creation of new research collaborations, and create a strong Swiss community around network science. The event will include not only the talks by the speakers, but also ample time for more informal discussions.
The event is a local chapter of the activities of the Network Science Society.
