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-X 2015 coming up

The NetSci-X Conference will be held in Rio de Janeiro, January 14-16, 2015. Leadings researchers examining networks from the perspectives of biological and environmental sciences, computer and information sciences, social sciences, and economics will gather for interdisciplinary collaboration. NS CTA researchers Jiawei Han and Albert-László Barabási are invited speakers.
