The Workshop

Network science is an interdisciplinary field of research in which the physicists are also interested in understanding the biological, technological and social networks using techniques of statistical physics and non-linear dynamics. The area has grown at an exponential rate in the last two decades opening up exciting avenues. The NeSci2020 workshop aims to bring together researchers working in this exciting domain and those who are intending to work in this area. This workshop provide lectures and hands-on training with various statistical and computational tools that can be used to perform network analysis.
