The analysis of complex networks has in recent years started to play a central role in all sorts of applied and theoretical fields of science and technology. The advent of the computer age has resulted in increasing interest in fundamental properties of real-world phenomena appearing for instance in transportation, traffic, communication, energy, biological and social networks. Mathematics has been playing a primary role in establishing what is now referred to (by some) as Network science: a new, fast-growing interdisciplinary scientific field.Find out more »
The YEP workshop series is an annually recurring workshop aimed at Young (European) Probabilists, i.e., researchers at the PhD and Postdoc level in probability and related areas. This year, the topic of YEP XIV are Networks. Since networks are naturally at the interface between various different mathematical disciplines, this YEP will focus not only on purely probabilistic aspects, but also take a more combinatorial and algorithmic perspective. The workshop consists of two parts: the first part is three mini-courses about important recent developments. The second part consist of talks by young researchers.Find out more »
The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers to discuss the latest developments in various topics at the interface of probability, combinatorics, and algorithms including amongst others:
– Random graphs and matrices
– Threshold phenomena
– Discrete random processes and algorithms on graphs
Recent advances in the study of networks in the physics, mathematics and computer science communities have provided novel probabilistic tools to address various network-related problems of practical relevance. Two seemingly different, but actually intimately related, problems are community detection and network reconstruction.
Community detection is the identification of groups of nodes that share some property (e.g., are densely connected with each other in a given real-world network). This seemingly simple task presents us with several computational and analytical challenges, even in very simple and idealized scenarios.
Israeli-Dutch Workshop on Applied Probability and Queues – on the occasion of David Perry’s 70th birthday and retirement from the University of Haifa.
Both Israel and The Netherlands have very strong research communities in queueing theory and related topics like performance analysis, inventory theory and insurance risk. This is reflected in, a.o., positions in editorial boards, prizes, awards and research grants.Find out more »
The 11th edition of the YEQT workshop, which will take place in December 2017, revolves around the theme “Stochastic Modeling and Analysis of Energy Networks”. This workshop aims to bring together young researchers (PhD students, postdocs, and recently appointed lecturers or assistant professors) and renowned scientists to share ideas, discuss research, and enable the next generation of researchers to obtain an overview of the emerging research field of energy networks and electricity markets.Find out more »
