MoN13 2014: Thirteenth Mathematics of Networks meeting – Imperial College London

The thirteenth Mathematics of Networks meeting will take place on Wednesday 10th September 2014 at Imperial College in London. The meeting is free to present and to attend. Thanks to Tim Evans for acting as local organiser. MoN13 is supported by the EPSRC UK Network on Emergence and Physics far from equilibrium.

This MoN is being organised to coincide with The Connected Past. TCP is a one-and-a-half-day multi-disciplinary meeting to explore how concepts and techniques from network- and complexity science can be used to study archaeological data. It will be held on 8th and 9th September at Imperial college.

About Mathematics of Networks

Mathematics of Networks is an informal series of meetings that has now been running for eleven years. It encourages interdisciplinary communication in networking research. It is an excellent venue for presenting new ideas or gaining a wider audience for established research. Presentations on any aspect of networking are welcomed, particularly if the techniques or conclusions are applicable in other networking disciplines. Slides and information from previous meetings are available.

To receive updates on this meeting or to hear about future meetings in the series, please join the mailing list.
