The Workshop

Graphs lie at the heart of many important problems in science and engineering. They are crucial for understanding and representing phenomena like financial networks, social networks, neuronal networks, biological networks, and much much more. This workshop will explore a variety of fundamental problems that can be approached using graph-theoretic concepts, data-sets that involve network components and algorithms that can be applied to graphs. The workshop aim to foster discussion, discovery, and dissemination of the state-of-the-art in graphs across a wide variety of disciplines (including, but not limited to, computer science, statistics, optimization, finance, sociology and neuroscience). In addition to invited talks by invited keynote speakers such as Duncan Watts (Microsoft Research), Anima Anandkumar (UC Irvine), and Alireza Tahbaz-Salehi (Columbia), the workshop also has contributed abstracts which will be presented via oral and poster presentation.
