Network science applications are used everywhere for depicting the structure of interactions and preferences in various social and economic settings. They can succinctly represent interactions among friends and colleagues in social settings, economic and financial linkages among firms and businesses, adoption of new products via word-of-mouth, and the spread of epidemics. Their prevalence has led to extensive cross-disciplinary research in recent years, combining expertise from operations research, economics, marketing, and computer science. This conference will feature recent research on social and economic networks.
Previous editions were held at Harvard, Stanford, Washington University in St. Louis, Vanderbilt, Indiana University Bloomington, University of Chicago, and Virginia Tech.
