IMA logo 

The eighteenth Mathematics of Networks meeting will be held on 8th April 2019 at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. The theme for this meeting is dynamics on networks and dynamics of networks. Thanks to Andrew Mellor and Ebrahim Patel our local organisers. The organizers are grateful to The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) for sponsoring this meeting.

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.
