Call for Satellite Symposia – NetSci 2018

We would like to bring your attention to the Call for Satellite Symposia for the International School and Conference on Network Science, NetSci 2018 , to be held in Paris, France, from June 11 to 15, 2018. NetSci 2018 aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners working in the emerging area of network science.

The conference fosters interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in network science research within the biological and environmental sciences, computer and information sciences, social sciences, finance and business, arts and design and beyond.

Following the successful tradition of previous venues, NetSci 2018 will host several Satellite Symposia on June 11 and 12 as precursors of the main conference. These satellite events are one-day or half-day meetings with a focus on a specific topic of Network Science and its Applications. All subjects are welcome. Organizers of a Satellite will be given 1 fully-waived registration fee for NetSci 2018 that could be used to cover the participation of either an invited speaker to the satellite or for any other participant/organizer.

How to submit proposals
