Since the late 1990s there has been a surge of interest in stochastic models for real-world networks: the Internet (physical links and WWW links), social networks (co-authors, friends), biological (gene regulatory networks, ecology, protein folding) and many more. This workshop seeks to bring together (a) mathematicians studying the math properties of particular models, and (b) experts in various network fields who can survey the successes and challenges of modeling within their field. ________________________________________________________ Workshop Schedule (Lecture Abstracts - PDF file updated 4/15/05) All sessions will be held in the Second Floor lecture Hall.
