    June 15 2012, 01:00 - 01:00
    Location: AmCham – 77 rue de Miromesnil 75008 Paris

     Networks are ubiquitous in our modern society. The World Wide Web links us to and enables information flows with the rest of the world. Our social life is organized around networks of friends and colleagues. They also potentially link us to everybody else in the world. Networks determine our information and knowledge and shape our socio-economic-political attitudes.
    This talk will introduce key tools for understanding networks. It will show how certain common principles relate to diverse networks and how the same issues relate to robustness, fragility, and inter-linkages in several different types of networks. This timely workshop should be relevant to specialists and non-specialists alike. Benefit today from The Power of Networks! Specific applications will be considered.
    Timings: 8.30am (coffee), start at 9am-1pm (including 2nd coffee break), followed by a light buffet lunch (networking).
