Workshop on Social Networks
February 20 - 24, 2012
Analysis of social networks that describe the complex relationships
between the members of a group, ranging in scale from a few
individuals to the global population, has emerged as a key research
tool in understanding complex social phenomena.
While the study of communities and connectedness has a long tradition
in the social sciences, with the recent advent of electronic
communication over the internet it has captured the imagination of the
general public and has become an important field of inquiry for
practitioners in many different disciplines including graph theory,
optimization, economics, game theory, psychology, statistics and data
The workshop will provide an in-depth introduction to modeling and
analysis of social networks. By bringing together
social scientists, physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists
working on different aspects of social networks, the meeting aims to
foster cross-disciplinary interactions and long-term collaborations.
The event is being jointly organized by the Institute of Mathematical
Sciences (IMSc), Indian Institute of Technology-Madras (IIT-M) and the
IISc Mathematics Initiative (IMI).
