MoN10: Tenth Mathematics of Networks meeting – Loughborough University

The Tenth Mathematics of Networks meeting was held on Friday 16th September 2011 at Loughborough University- Thanks to Iain Phillips for acting as host on this occasion. This meeting had the theme “Modelling Network Traffic and Internet Architecture”. Thank you to Loughborough Computer Science department for sponsoring this meeting.

This informal series of meetings gives researchers a forum to present new work which uses mathematics to investigate networks. The meetings encourage interdisciplinary communications and talks have been from many fields including computer networks, road networks, economic networks and biological networks.

Travelling to Loughborough University

Directions to Loughborough are here.

An interactive campus map can be found here and a printable version here (PDF).

We will hold the workshop in the Bridgeman Centre (room XX019).

If you travel by rail, the campus can be reached by walking (approximately 30 minutes), taxi (ask for Bridgeman on the Loughborough campus) or bus (take shuttle bus Kinchbus Number 7 from the station and get off at the Student’s Union, the first stop after the bus enters the main campus).

If you drive then car park number 9 is closest, ask for directions at the Gatehouse.
