ICTS: School-cum-Workshop on Network Science in EE and CS

October 31, 2011 Leave a comment

Mathematics and its applications permeate a significant amount of research currently being carried out at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc). Recognizing this, an “IISc Mathematics Initiative (IMI)” was setup to foster interdisciplinary collaborations between different research areas with mathematics as the common theme. Such collaborations would help scientists and engineers solve research problems requiring inputs from mathematicians.
As part of IMI yearly activities, it maintains a theme for all those events that happen in a given year. Following this trend, for this academic year 2011-2012, the theme is “Mathematics of Networks”. As part of this, the following events are planned by the organizing committee:

  • Workshop on Introduction to Network Science
    (August 29 – September 02, 2011)

  • Workshop on Networks: Structure and Function
    (November 04 – 05, 2011)

  • Associated Workshop on Mathematics in Network Science: Implications for Socially-Coupled Systems
    (One week in November, 2011)

  • ICTS School on Network Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
    (January 02 – 07, 2012)

  • ICTS Workshop on Network Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
    (January 09 – 14, 2012)

  • Workshop on Social Networks
    (February 14 – 18, 2012)

  • Workshop on Network Science in Biology
    (One Week in March/April 2012)

  • School on Networks in Biology, Social Science and Engineering
    (July 02 – 13, 2012)

  • International Conference on Networks in Biology, Social Science and Engineering
    (July 16 – 20, 2012)

The following is the email from Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Mathematics Initiative “Networks Year” Organizing Committee
to call for the up-coming ICTS Workshop on Network Science in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
(January 09 – 14, 2012)

Dear All,

School-cum-Workshop on Network Science in Electrical Engineering and
Computer Science

Dates: School: January 02 – 07, 2012
Workshop: January 09 – 14, 2012

Venue: Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore

We are pleased to announce ICTS School-cum-Workshop on Network Science in
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, organized as part of IISc
Mathematics Initiative (IMI) Thematic year on Network Science (2011-12).

The new and emerging field of Network Science is based on the simple
observation that large human engineered systems (e.g., communication
networks, information networks, social networks, etc.) and natural systems
can be modeled as networks of entities. Hence, it is possible that common
principles can be brought to bear on the analysis, design and control of
such systems. In addition, insights gained from networks in one domain
could be brought to bear on understanding networks in other domains.

For the past few years, Network Science has been an exploding research
area transcending disciplinary boundaries, receiving the attention and
inputs from leading figures in mathematics, physics, biology, engineering,
and many other disciplines.

The purpose of this event is to take stock of the current developments and
trends, to build bridges across disciplines in the Indian research
community interested in networks research, and to alert and expose young
students and faculty to the potentialities begging for their attention and
efforts. While “Network Science” can be very broadly defined, the scope of
this event will be limited to the domains arising in Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science, and various related tools from
Mathematics.

IEEE International Workshop: Business Applications of Social Network Analysis (BASNA 2010) 

August 30, 2010 Leave a comment

The aim of this workshop is to encourage multidisciplinary discussions related to novel ideas and application geared towards analyzing social network data. By bringing together researchers in the fields of SNA, data mining, and management studies, the workshop will focus on identifying the “grey” areas of collaboration among their respective disciplines:

1. The role of data mining techniques in identifying scalable methods for the extraction and organization of social relations for management research and business practice
2. The role of management research in guiding data mining efforts and SNA metrics development towards theoretically-grounded discoveries about social network emergence.
3. The role of Social Network Analysis in developing and applying metrics and tools for the mapping, evaluation, visualization, and design of social relations in organizations.

Important Dates:
Deadline of submission of papers: 19 September 2010
Paper Review Notification: 11 October 2010
Final Camera Ready Paper Due: 31 October 2010
Deadline for authors’ registration: 6 November 2010
BASNA Workshop: 15 December 2010
