Held at the New York University Stern School of Management, WIN is a Social Networks Summit intended to foster collaboration and to build community across all disciplines of network sciences.
Check out some of the images from this scientific symposium.
The conference organizer, Sinan Aral met me at the PopTech Science Fellows Program in August, and invited us to participate in the gathering of scientists experimenting with network effects.
The increasing availability of massive networked data is revolutionizing the scientific study of a variety of phenomena in fields as diverse as Computer Science, Economics, Physics and Sociology. Yet, while many important advances have taken place in these different communities, the dialog between researchers across disciplines is only beginning. The purpose of WIN is to bring together leading researchers studying ‘information in networks’ – its distribution, its diffusion, its value, and its influence on social and economic outcomes – in order to lay the foundation for ongoing relationships and to build a lasting multidisciplinary research community.
