Visualization of a network constructed using simple probabilistic rules, showing the emergence of hubs and other macroscopic network phenomenon. From https://graph-tool.skewed.de
Networks, graph driven algorithms, and dynamics on graphs such as epidemics, random walks and centrality measures all play a major role, both in our daily lives as well as many scientific and engineering disciplines. This introductory workshop will bring together experts and junior researchers in combinatorics, probability, and statistics to share a broad vision of major challenges and objectives, with a primary focus on models of random graphs and their limits, network inference, dynamic processes on networks and algorithms and optimization on random structures.
