Cambridge Networks Day


CNDay 2014

CNN is pleased to announce the Cambridge Networks Day 2014 (CNDay 2014) - a one-day conference bringing together researchers with an interest in complex networks from various departments and institutes in Cambridge and beyond.

CNDay 2014 will take place on Friday the 23rd of May 2014 at the Sainsbury Laboratory. Thanks to the generous sponsorship of Amadeus Capital, RealVNCCambridge University Press, DueDil, the University of Cambridge and the Sainsbury Laboratory, the event will be free of charge. However, the number of participants is capped at 150 and registration is required.

To register, click here.

This year we are again privileged to have a truly distinguished lineup of speakers. Their interests (and affiliations) span a wide range of fields, from biology to physics, computer science and business, so we hope to see an equally broad audience attend. The list of confirmed speakers for CNDay 2014 includes:

Prof Mark Newman (Paul Dirac Collegiate Professor of Physics - Department of Physics and Centre for the Study of Complex Systems, University of Michigan and Santa Fe Institute, USA) 

Prof Tom Freeman (Division of Genetics and Genomics, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh)

Dr Martin Rosvall (Umea University, Sweden)

Dr Rui Carvalho (DPMMS, University of Cambridge)

Prof Zoubin Ghahramani (Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge)

Dr Vittoria Colizza (Inserm, Pierre Louis Institute of Epidemiology and Public Health & Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris)

Dr Fabio Caccioli (Centre for Risk Studies, Judge Business School, University of Cambridge)

The event will also feature a poster session held during lunch and a prize for best poster. If you would like to present a poster on any topic related to networks, please register for the event, then send us an abstract of your poster by the 25th of April (email - you will be notified shortly thereafter about acceptance of your poster as well as poster formatting details).
