In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.

The goal of this school is twofold:

  1. Provide a theoretical background to students (Master, PhD) and young researchers in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science;
  2. Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants.

For this reason, the program will involve lectures from experts in different fields (social science, game theory, human mobility, neuroscience, etc) for 70% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to:

  • Flash talks given by attendants, followed by debates;
  • Thematic round tables involving lecturers and attendants.

The School will award two prizes: i) to one attendant, for the best flash talk; ii) to one lecturer, for the best lecture.

The school will take place in Salina, a small island in the north of Sicily (Italy). Salina, fully covered by green vegetation and surrounded by the sea, represents a suitable small and quite environment to achieve the purposes of this school.
