Brainstorm Day

The LCN2 Brainstorm Day on May 9 will feature a full day of talks about networks by people from the participating institutes. It can be considered a "special event" part of the regular monthly LCN2 seminar series.

Everyone interested in attending the meeting is welcome!


10:00–10:45 Luca Avena
Some probabilistic tools to process data sets on networks

10:45–11:30 Quentin Bourgeois
Archeological networks: Reconstructing the transmission of idea... 5000 years ago

11:45–12:30 Roeland Merks
The generation of biological transport networks through collective behaviour of cells and chemicals

12:45–13:30 Lunch

13:30–14:15 Gerard van Westen
Computational drug discovery and networks - overview and opportunities

14:15–15:00 Remco van der Hofstad
Modeling structure and function of complex networks and the brain

15:30–16:15 Joke Meijer
The biological clock as a model system for complexity research on the brain

16:15–17:00 Jos Rohling
Methods to analyse the biological network of our internal clock

17:00 Reception
With drinks and snacks.

About the LCN2 seminar

This event is part of a series of seminars organized within an ongoing scientific initiative called "Leiden Complex Networks Network (LCN2), which aims at bringing together scientists with a common interest in both theoretical models and empirical analyses of complex networks and random graphs. The LCN2 community that is being established shares the approach of using networks for describing real-world complex systems and aims at developing related analytical and numerical methods, while also being open to other research approaches for studying complex systems. The talks are designed for a broad audience, allowing for constructive exchanges of ideas between scientists from different disciplines.
