Spatially Embedded Networks - Events September 2018

11 September 2018, 9.00 AM - 14 September 2018, 5.00 PM

School of Mathematics, University Walk, Clifton, Bristol BS8 1TW

Many networks are spatial in that nodes have a location and links are more common between closely spaced nodes.  As in the previous events held in Oxford in 2016 and 2017, we are running a short course for PhD students and researchers new to the field, and a two-day symposium on spatial networks and applications to diverse complex networks and wireless communications.

This year the short course will focus on stochastic geometry, including point and line processes, and on spatial complex networks. Contributions for research talks in the symposium in all areas relevant to spatial, complex and/or wireless networks and stochastic geometry are very welcome.

Invited speakers

Professor Mathew Penrose, University of Bath

Marco DiRenzo, CNRS

Professor Harpreet Dhillon, Virginia Tech

Marc Barthelemy, Saclay

Dr Thilo Gross, University of Bristol


Short Course, 11 - 12 September 

The course will take place in Lecture Theatre 2, School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, BS8 1TW.

Registration has now closed. Any queries should be directed to maths-conference-administrator@bristol.ac.uk.
