You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to CompleNet 2019, the 10th Annual Conference on Complex Networks, to take place in Tarragona, Spain, in March 18-21, 2019.

CompleNet is an international conference on complex networks that brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines—from sociology, biology, physics, and computer science—who share a passion to better understand the interdependencies within and across systems. CompleNet is a venue to discuss ideas and findings about all types networks, from biological, to technological, to informational and social. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that CompleNet aims to explore and celebrate.

We encourage you to submit an extended abstract to the 10th CompleNet conference. The two types of presentations will be Oral Presentations and Posters. All oral presentations will take place in a single plenary session, offering heightened exposure and integration across topics and expertise.

Gamechangers for diversity in STEM

last modified Jul 27, 2018 03:38 PM

Turing Institute, London, 21st and 22nd September 2018

Across STEM people face many challenges: professional isolation, sexual harassment and bullying, and difficulties balancing work and family. These sorts of experiences disproportionately affect women, people from ethnic minorities, the LGBTQ+ community and disabled people.

At STEM Gamechangers we invite you to join us to build a fresh, bold vision for a more inclusive environment in STEM.
How? By working on evidence-based, practical solutions. Across the UK many people are already working hard to create and support diversity within their own institutions and workplaces. However, there is often little to no support or funding and their efforts can be under appreciated. By coming together we can change this, inspire each other and create new collaborations and opportunities.

If you’re passionate about diversity in STEM and want to work on projects to make a real difference, please apply to join us in September.

Workshop on Physics and Ecology: Challenges at the Frontier

last modified Jul 27, 2018 03:35 PM

Menorca, October 9-11, 2018

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to Physics and Ecology: Challenges at the Frontier, the XXXIV Scientific meetings in the Mediterranean, which will take place in Menorca, Spain, October 9th-11th, 2018.

Summary: The technological capacity to obtain and manage large volumes of data from biological systems should lead biology and, in particular ecology, towards a new theoretical sphere, increasingly grounded on principles and general mechanisms. In this transition, physics will play an essential role for its capacity for abstract and fundamental reasoning.This meeting aims to be a meeting point for researchers living in this stimulating frontier, so that they offer us their points of view and the keys that must mark these challenges for the future.

Dataset challenge

last modified Jun 20, 2018 07:50 PM

December 5-7, 2018
Cologne, Germany

For the first Dataset Challenge as part of our European Symposium on Societal Challenges in CSS, we invite researchers and practitioners from the spectrum of Social and Computational Sciences to approach a common dataset. The aim of this challenge is to encourage creative engagement with data from pluralistic perspectives in order to foster dialogue across disciplines.

The provided datasets all relate to the topic of political communication in Germany, particularly around the German federal election which took place in September 2017.

The research questions and methods applied to the dataset(s) can be drawn from the broad spectrum of Computational Social Science. They should ideally be related to this year's symposium topic 'bias and discrimination' and approach new ways of learning about bias, be it by putting forward new research designs and questions, or by applying state-of-the-art methods to identify data patterns that can inform theory building.

Please see our website for detailed information about the datasets and submission guidelines:

Deadline for abstract submissions to the dataset challenge: September 1, 2018
