Composite Networks: Understand, Predict, and Influence

The Network Science Collaborative Technology Alliance (NS CTA) is a collaborative research alliance between the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL), other government researchers, and a Consortium of four research centers: an Academic Research Center (ARC) focused on social/cognitive networks (the SCNARC), an ARC focused on information networks (the INARC), an ARC focused on communications networks (the CNARC), and an Interdisciplinary Research Center (the IRC) focused on interdisciplinary research and technology transition. The Alliance unites research across organizations, technical disciplines, and research areas to address the critical technical challenges of the Army and Network-Centric Warfare (NCW). Its purpose is to perform foundational cross-cutting research on network science, resulting in greatly enhanced human performance for network-enabled warfare and in greatly enhanced speed and precision for complex military operations.

NetSci 2014 symposium on the physics of human social behavior

The NetSci 2014 Symposium “Temporal Networks, Human Dynamics and Social Physics” will be held in Berkeley, CA, June 3 2014. The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers interested in the use of network science and human behavioral data to improve our understanding of the physics of human social behavior. The symposium is in part organized by NSCTA researchers, with a variety of interesting talks lined up. The abstract deadline is May 1st.  For more information, please see our website: http://www.tnetsphys14.org/
