Workshop on Multilayer and Interconnected Networks: Epidemic Processes and Robustness

posted Jan 15, 2016, 4:36 AM by Grup EDMA   [ updated May 31, 2016, 3:30 AM ]

Propagation of rumours, computer viruses, infectious diseases, technological innovations, or awareness between individuals are examples of contagious processes. Some of them can take place simultaneously over the same set of nodes (individuals, computers, ...) but through different types of interactions (different routes of transmission). Such a situation is formally described in terms of multilayer networks or, more generally, in terms of interconnected networks when the set of nodes differs from one layer to another.   

The goal of this one-day workshop is to bring together scientists working on the topic of multilayer and interconnected networks. The speakers will present their latest results and will carry out a discussion on the state of the art and current open challenges for this topic. We hope the meeting will provide an informal venufor encouraging interdisciplinary communication. 


The workshop is co-organized by the groups "Differential Equations, Modelling, and Applications"(EDMAand "Broadband Communication and Distributed Systems" (BCDS), both from the Universitat de Girona (UdG). 

The event has financial support from the UdG, and will be held on Wednesday, 8 June 2016, at the premises of the Escola Politècnica Superior of this university. 

Attendance is free of cost but registration for audience members is required for organizational purposes. In order to 
register, please use the online registration form.
