Meetings

This is a list of some upcoming meetings which may be of interest.  Also some links to information on regular series of conferences as well as some other locations where you can find more comprehensive lists of interesting meetings.
  • The Connected Past
    A friendly, intriguing and informative series of meetings held at irregular times on networks in a historical context.  Last one was in Bournemouth, 2017 but there is likely to be another in 2018.
  • Mathematics of Networks meetings.
    An informal series of meetings on the mathematics used to investigate networks organised by Keith Briggs (BT) and Richard Clegg (QMUL). Typically one day in September, held in the UK.
  • The Network Science Society conferences.
    The main conference series organized by the Network Science Society is NetSci.  This is one of the most important conferences on networks. These are an annual series of conferences containing a number of satellites (which I often find the most interesting part) preceded by a summer school on all aspects of network science. Typically held at the end of May or the start of June. NetSci 2018 is in Paris, 11-15th June 2018.
    One workshop of interest to me this year is BlockNet – BLOCKCHAIN AND FINTECH NETWORK SCIENC
  • The Network Science Society also organizes a smaller series of meetings, NetSci-X. This newer smaller offshoot from the main conference series, typically held around January. Has a nice system to allow you to opt out of the proceedings if that suits you (it does in my circumstances). The 2018 meeting was in Hangzhou, China in January 2018 but apparently had around 600 participants, much larger than normal.
  • The CompleNet Conference series.
    These are a smaller series of conferences focussed on Networks, typically held around the end of March. The 2018 meeting is CompleNet 2018 to be held in Boston, 5th-8th March 2018.
    Like many conferences, you pay a significant amount of money to get a paper in the CompleNet proceedings.  However you want to be careful as these are not typically open access proceedings, the publishers may not allow you to make an arXiv submission or place a copy on another open repository.  This was what I encountered and it prevented me from reusing the material in an article that might get some recognition. Essentially it becomes a vanity publication and it sunk without trace as far as I was concerned. So check you can avoid that which is usually the case.
  • The Complex Networks and their Applications series of conferences. Usually held late in the year.  The 2017 event is in Lyon, France, on 29th November  - 1st December, 2017 and it has a very interesting lineup of speakers.
  • The Complex Systems Society (CCS) annual conference in September.
    This is now an international series of conferences (it started as the ECCS with a European base), with significant content on complexity and networks. I find the detailed workshops held in the middle are usually the most interesting. The CCS 2018 meeting is 23-28 September in Thessaloniki, Greece.
  • Complexity and Networks series at Imperial.
  • COMS
    A list of Meetings/Workshops on Complex Systems, Chaos and Self-Organisation in the United Kingdom
  • List of meetings in many topics including complexity.
  • CxConferences is a list of meetings on complexity.
  • The European Association of Archaeologists Conferences – EAA
    This often has some networks content though obviously for a historical context. EAA 2017 is in Maastricht 30 August – 3 September 2017.
  • ARS 17 with Historical Networks Research group, in Naples, 16-17 May, 2017
  • International Conference on Computational Social Science -IC2S2
    The4th  International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC2S2) will be in Northwestern University in Evanston, USA, July 12-15 2018.
  • Crossroads in Complex Systems, IFISC, Mallorca, June 5-8, 2017
  • International Conference on Computational Science (ICCS)
    ICCS 2018 will be in  July 22-27, 2018, in Cambridge, MA, USA.
  • Sunbelt
    The INSNA (the International Network for Social Network Analysis) is an association for researchers interested in social network analysis. they organise the Sunbelt series of meetings.  These have a strong social science bias and are very big with (too) many different tracks running simultaneously.  Another downside is the need to join the society to submit a paper, which means you may need to join twice, for the calendar year of and the year before the conference.  They are the focus for social science researchers using networks with all the leading people from those areas but that means I have found the focus is too far from my work to justify the cost. Will be in Utrecht, NL 26 June to 1 July 2018.
  • European Conference on Social Networks EUSN.
    The European offshoot fo the INSNA Sunbelt series. The 3rd European Conference on Social Networks will be held in Mainz, at Johannes Gutenberg-University, September 26 to 29, 2017.
  • SOCINFO – The International Conference on Social Informatics
    The 9th International Conference on Social Informatics
    (SocInfo 2017) is on 13-15 September 2017, in Oxford.
  • European Network Intelligence Conference – ENIC
    The 4th European Network Intelligence Conference (ENIC 2017) will be on 11-12 September 2017 in Duisburg, Germany.
  • ISSI - International Society for Scientometrics & Informetrics
    ISSI holds an international conference every two years with a clear focus on bibliometrics. In 2017 this will be in Wuhan, China,  16–20 October 2017.
  • Computer Scientists have many appropriate conferences containing network research but I have yet to break into these. For instance KDD conference series which is in London
    3-5 July 2018
