SYNS 2017

The first gathering of the Society of Young Network Scientists (SYNS) was held on the first two days of Netsci2017, June 19-20, in Indianapolis. The aim of this initiative is to bring together early career researchers, especially PhD students from all over the world, who have a diverse, wide-spread spectra of interest with one major commonality: networks. During the two days of the symposium, the participants introduced their research interest in short lightning talks, we had a brief shool on the basics of network science, we heard established scientists talk about how they made their greatest discovery, and had a great panel discussion as well. All the lecturers were houshold names of the field, such as Albert-Laszlo Barabasi, Alessandro Vespignani, Santo Fortunato, and Roberta Sinatra. Roberta, assistant professor at CNS, also gave an exciting plenary talk on how to quantify patterns of success on creative fields, like art and science. Milan Janosov, a PhD student at CNS won a scholarship to take part in the SYNS symposium. 

The organization and the program received funding from the U.S Army Research Office.
