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.
