YEP XV "Information Diffusion on Random Networks"

Mar 25, 2019 - Mar 29, 2019

Summary

The "Information diffusion on random graphs" workshop is the 15th workshop in the ‘Young European Probabilists’ yearly workshops.

Diffusion processes in networks manifests themselves in many real-life scenarios, such as epidemic spreading, viral marketing and power blackouts. This YEP workshop focuses information diffusion on networks. The phenomenon of information diffusion recently attracted vast attention across a wide range of research fields, including mathematics, physics, computer science, and social sciences. Therefore, this YEP will focus not only on purely probabilistic aspects, but also take an algorithmic and application perspective. The aim of the workshop is to bring together junior and senior researchers from probability and from other fields, and to bridge the corresponding scientific communities.

The workshop will have three mini courses by internationally renowned researchers, giving an opportunity to junior as well as senior attendants to learn about a new topic related to information diffusion. Other than that, the workshop will consist of invited talks by junior and senior researchers.
