Cambridge Networks Day 2019 | August 29 2019
CNDay is a one day, interdisciplinary meeting on complex networks and their applications. The event brings together researchers with an interest in networks from a wide variety of fields, from biology to physics, computer science, sociology and business.
We have a fantastic line up of speakers for 2019, including:
Professor Danielle Bassett (Professor of Bioengineering and Professor of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania). In her keynote lecture entitled "Networks Thinking Themselves" Prof Bassett will describe human brain networks and the networks of relational knowledge that they learn.
Dr Edoardo Gallo (The Ajit Singh Fellow in Economics and Lecturer in Microeconomic Theory at Cambridge University). Dr Gallo's work focuses on networks in experimental economics. He will talk about "Strongly Connected Cooperative Elites".
Dr Ginestra Bianconi (Reader in Applied Mathematics at Queen Mary University of London and Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute). Dr Bianconi's talk will focus on "Multilayer Networks: Structure and Function", the topic of her recent book .
Professor Charlotte Deane (Professor of Structural Bioinformatics, Head of Department of Statistics at Oxford University and Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute). Prof Deane works on biological networks, protein structure and immunoinformatics and will speak about "Measuring rank robustness in scored protein interaction networks"
Professor Roberta Sinatra (Assistant Professor in Computer Science at ITU Copenhagen). Prof Sinatra's work is at the forefront of computational social science. She will be discussing the Science of science and the science of success in her talk on "Physics, interdisciplinarity and the chaperone effect".
Professor Ronaldo Menezes (Professor of Data and Network Science and Head of Computer Science at the University of Exeter). Prof Menezes' work focuses on camplex networks and spans from bio-inspired computing to human dynamics. Come hear him speak "On the Scale, Concentration and Dynamics of Crime."
There will also be plenty of time for networking (including over a buffet lunch) and a poster session.
To apply for the poster session, please submit a title and abstract here, with a deadline of Friday 26th July 2019. The best posters will be offered the chance to present a 1 minute flash talk.
We have some grants available for fee waivers, travel and additional needs (e.g. to cover childcare costs), which you can apply for here, with a deadline of Friday 26th July 2019.
IMPORTANT: Because spaces are limited, please make sure you sign up for the event before applying for a grant or to present a poster. If your grant or poster application is unsuccessful, you will have the opportunity to unregister and have your registration fee reimbursed.
CNDay 2019 is kindly supported by The Alan Turing Institute, Cambridge Big Data and King's College Cambridge.

OrganiserCambridge Networks Network
Organiser of Cambridge Networks Day 2019
CNN was founded in September 2011, originally with the aim of bringing together faculty, post docs and research students from a wide range of departments at the University of Cambridge who share an interest in Complex Networks. CNN has grown rapidly since its creation and now also comprises members from other universities around the UK and beyond.
