IUNI’s Network Science Talk series brings focuses on bringing in a select few leading and emerging network science researchers from outside of Indiana University and from a variety of fields each semester. All talks are livecasted and archived.
Anyone in the IU community may nominate a speaker for the talk series. Nominations are open year round, with decisions generally being made in January for the upcoming academic year. IUNI Scientific Co-Director Olaf Sporns oversees the selection of speakers.
The IUNI Network Science Talk Series is a continuation of a weekly talk series started in 2004 and organized by Katy Börner. From its inception, the series was an interdisciplinary effort, featured speakers from both inside Indiana University and visiting scholars. Börner assembled an impressive list of speakers and an enduring archive of talk slides, audio, and video of previous talks. This talk series helped create a community among networks researchers who might not have often encountered each other on campus, including biologists, physicists, sociologists, information scientists, psychologists, and others who found common ground in methods and approaches.
