A working meeting sponsored by the Foundational Questions Institute
and held in Torino, Italy at the ISI Foundation
Monday May 25th to Thursday May 28th, 2015
Network theory is a diverse subject which developed independently in several disciplines. It uses graphs with additional structure to model everything from complex systems to theories of fundamental physics.
This event aims to further our understanding of the mathematical theory underlying the relations between seemingly different networked systems. It's part of the Azimuth network theory project.
With the exception of the first day (Monday May 25th) we will kick things off with a morning talk, with plenty of time for questions and interaction. We will then break for lunch at 1:00 p.m. and return for an afternoon work session. People are encouraged to give informal talks and to present their ideas in the afternoon sessions.
Monday May 25th 10:30 a.m.
- Jacob Biamonte: opening remarks
