About Mathematics of Networks

MoN is an informal series of meetings that has now been running since 2003. The series encourages interdisciplinary communication in networking research. It is an excellent venue for presenting new ideas or gaining a wider audience for established research.

Information and slides 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.
