The NetSci school will take place June 3-4 at the Danish Technical University (the same venue as the satellites). The program is as follows.

Monday June 3

9:00 AM – 15:00 PM
Albert-László Barabási
An introduction to network science based on the recent (free) book Network Science.

15:30 PM – 17:00 PM: Tutorial, bring you laptop.
Sébastien Heymann (Gephi)
Presents the network analysis software platform Gephi an open source interactive visualization and exploration software for complex networks. Sébastien is a leader of the Gephi project and the administrator of the Gephi Consortium. His talk will include coverage of the newest version’s ability to analyze and visualize evolving networks.

Before the Gephi tutorial:
1 – Download and install Gephi from
2 – Ensure that it runs properly on your laptop.
3 – Download the workshop kit. It contains the datasets we’ll use and the documentation:
4 - Please bring a mouse with a wheel to use Gephi efficiently.


Tuesday June 4

9:00 AM – 10:30 PM
Renaud Lambiotte
Discusses specialized network topics. He focuses on multiplex networks, that is networks where nodes are connected by different types of edges. He emphasises their importance for modelling social networks, and draws connections to the fields of community detection and conflict dynamics.

11:00 PM – 12:30 PM
Naoki MasudaTemporal networks: Introduction
Lectures on temporal networks in which contacts between nodes are time-dependent. He starts with a data-driven, beginner-friendly introduction and discuss topics such as properties of real data, quantities characaterizing temporal networks, epidemic spreading, etc. Even though temporal networks have been developed on top of atemporal (i.e., static, conventional) networks, he will try to configure the lecture such that prior knowledge of the latter is minimally required.

13:30 PM – 14:45 PM
Aric Hagberg (NetworkX)
Gives a tutorial on the Python package NetworkX. NetworkX is a Python language software package for the creation, manipulation, and study of the structure, dynamics, and functions of complex networks. Besides being Deputy Director for the theoretical division of the Center for Nonlinear Studies at LANL, Aric is the primary developer of NetworkX.

15:15 PM – 16:30 PM (CANCELED). 
Charles Pooh (Wolfram Research)
Presents Mathematica for network research. Charles Pooh will address the new Network Science tools in Wolfram Research‘s Mathematica. Charles is is a senior kernel developer at Wolfram and in charge of the graph theory package (among other things) in Mathematica. Mathematica’s tools for networks have received a major upgrade in the past few years.
