Practical Applications of Network Science 2021

We have been successful in obtaining AMSI funding to host the workshop Practical Applications of Network Science 2021, which will be held online.  RMIT University will be hosting this workshop with the aim of developing the skills of HDR students and bringing together researchers in the field. Invited research talks will cover a broad range of topics including the use of network science in transportation, biology and social media. This workshop will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of February in 2021. This workshop will consist of:

  1. Two hands-on tutorial/lab sessions  on network analytics using the R software environment. The sessions will start from an introductory level on the first day and proceed to working with real-world applications on the second day.
  2. Invited research talks showcasing network science and its applications in the afternoons followed by time for networking opportunities. 

This is a free event, but registration is essential. More details at

Call for Proposals: MATRIX-MFO Tandem Workshop (2021)

The Mathematical Research Institute Oberwolfach (MFO), Germany and the Australian Mathematical Research Institute MATRIX invite proposals for a tandem workshop taking place simultaneously in a hybrid format at MATRIX and MFO  in the week of 5-11 September 2021

The workshop is held simultaneously in both locations.  At each institute 10-20 participants are possible, who can interact in the usual intense way locally and in addition share a certain number of joint lectures/discussions via zoom (for example Oberwolfach 9-11 am could match up with MATRIX at 5-7 pm). Talks given outside this time slot can be recorded via zoom for viewing by participants at the other institute, but not publicly.

Applications should come with a team of about  four organisers including at least two organisers planning to attend in person for each location. Organisers should aim for gender balance. The application should contain: 

  • Title of the suggested tandem workshop.
  • Description of the topic and focus of workshop, recent results, references (4-6 pages).
  • The proposed provisional program of the tandem workshop taking into account the different time zones.
  • List of 10-20 suggested participants at each institute with names, gender info and affiliation planned for each institute (i.e. two lists of intended invitees; please consider diversity issues of each institute).
  • Publication lists of the organizers.

Proposal guidelines:

Please send proposals (pdf-files) by email to the director of MFO and/or upload to the MATRIX website prior to the deadline Friday, 15 January 2021.
