Many phenomena in the complex world in which we live can be understood in terms of networks of interacting components. Acknowledgement of this fact has led to network models becoming ubiquitous in almost all areas of science, from biology to telecommunication and social sciences. In the mathematical sciences the importance of networks was recognised around the turn of the millennium, when a variety of random graph models were developed which have some of the characteristic features of real-world systems, like heavy-tailed degree distributions, small diameter, or significant clustering. Since then rapid progress has developed on two distinct fronts: On the one hand, combinatorialists and probabilists have developed rigorous techniques to describe the emerging topology of the (by now) classical random graph models like configuration models,inhomogeneous random graphs or preferential attachment networks in considerable detail. On the other hand, applied mathematicians and theoretical physicists have primarily focussed their attention on the dynamical properties of network processes, such as the spread of disease or the dissemination of information.

The objective of the meeting is to bring together researchers on networks with a probability or combinatorics background on the one hand, and with an applied mathematics background on the other. The organisers believe that the highly topical research theme of dynamical networks has recently found the interest of both communities and we are seeing an explosion of recent and ongoing activity in this area.  It is expected that there will be long-term benefits from the two communities working together and exchanging ideas.

 

Arrangements

It is anticipated that the workshop will begin with registration on Monday morning 18 January  and close at lunchtime on Friday 22 January 2016.   Please take these timings into account when booking your travel. 

Participation 

Invited participants will be sent an emailed invitation from ICMS in  October 2015, on behalf of the Scientific Organisers.

Places are available for Public Applicants.  TO APPLY, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

Please do NOT use this application form if you are an Invited Speaker - you will have already received a separate invitation.

Venue and Talks

The workshop will be held at 15 South College Street, Edinburgh.  You may also find this map useful for the workshop.  All lectures will be held in the Newhaven Lecture Theatre.    The Lecture Theatre is equipped with a data projector, computer, visualiser (the new generation of overhead projectors) and two blackboards.  The projector and one board may be used simultaneously.  It is best to bring your presentation on a memory stick to use in our ICMS computer.   Alternatively, it is possible for you to use your own laptop with our dataprojector, but please be aware that you may have to alter your laptop resolutions/settings. 

UK Visas

If you are travelling from overseas you may require an entry visa. A European visa does not guarantee entry to the UK. Please use this link to the UK Visas site to find out if you need a visa and if so how to apply for one.

Travel

Information about travel to the UK and Edinburgh is available here.  Please note that it is your responsibility to have adequate travel insurance to cover medical and other emergencies that may occur on your trip.

A taxi directly from the airport will cost approximately 20.00 GBP to the city centre for a one-way journey.     There is also a bus service direct from the airport to the city centre which will cost 4.50 single or 7.50 GBP return - the Airlink 100.  This is a frequent service (every 10 minutes during peak times) and will bring you close to Waverley Railway Station and the workshop venue. 

Lothian buses charge £1.50 for a single, £4.00 for a day ticket. Please note that the exact fare is required and no change is given.

If travelling by train, please note that Edinburgh has several railway stations; Waverley Railway Station being the main station and closest to the workshop venue at 15 South College Street. If you alight at Edinburgh Waverley, the meeting venue is an easy 10 minute walk over North and South Bridge.  The other railway stations are Haymarket and Edinburgh Park but please note that these stations are at the West End of the city centre.

Accommodation 

ICMS will organise accommodation for all invited participants.

Catering

The workshop grant will cover refreshments throughout the event, lunch every day, an informal wine and pizza reception on Monday evening and the workshop dinner one evening.   

Wireless Access

Access to wifi via Eduroam is available throughout the building. If you are not registered with Eduroam you will be given instructions and a code for accessing the wireless network.  For those without laptops, there will also be a couple of computers available for you to check your emails.  

Registration Fee

A 70.00 GBP registration fee is payable.
