MITACS International Focus Period
Advances in Network Analysis and its Applications

Scope: A major idea underpinning modern research is related to dynamic network analysis, whereby interacting communicating entities process, exchange and compute in order to attain optimal design goals. Applications can be found in all social, scientific and engineering areas: from wireless communication to network security, from co-operative and large scale computing to social networking, from financial analysis and risk assessment to cyber-warfare and understanding of war.

The focus of the workshop will be on problem solving. First day (Monday): in a joint meeting people present and discuss the open problems to everybody. The rest of the week participants will be working (with breaks) in separate groups (one per problem). Each working day concludes with a joint meeting that includes everybody so as to summarize what was accomplished. The second half of the last day (Friday) will be dedicated to summarizing what was accomplished during the week.

Participants by Working Group

Additional Events: The international focus period on advances in network analysis and its applications consisted of a sequence of workshops held in British Columbia and Ontario during 2010-2011 on important aspects of networks, including Financial (Toronto), Security (Toronto), Social (Vancouver), Biological (Vancouver), Wireless (Ottawa), and Network Economics (Vancouver), as well as Lectures and Tutorials in the School of Computer Science at Carleton University.
