ENCORE Workshop: Engineering applications of networks


01/11/2017 - 10:00 to 16:00




University of Bristol

About the event

Networks (as equivalent to graph theory in mathematics) provide a useful language for describing complex systems, where structure of connection among different interacting entities constituting a system is important. Various toolboxes, mathematical/theoretical and computational, to clarify complex networks, from algorithms to detect particular structure of networks to methods and indices with which to understand dynamics on and of networks, have been developed particularly in the past two decades.

Led by Dr Naoki Masuda (Bristol) on behalf of ENCORE Network+, this workshop will focus on engineering applications of netoworks. There will be a series of presentations ranging from relatively theoretical ones (related to engineering theory/applications; e.g control) to ones on practical engineering problems (e.g, project management) and discuss more of potentials of network science in engineering. 

Speakers will be confirmed in due course along with a finalised agenda.
