This workshop will bring together a community of people interested in both networks and dynamics, with an eye to both mathematical tractability and applications to biology, engineering, physics, and the social sciences.  The emphasis will be on ‘thresholds’ in their broadest sense as exemplified by node dynamics or interactions that are described by simple, yet possibly non-smooth or discontinuous switch-like processes.  The workshop will cover both theory and applications.

The meeting will have no parallel sessions, and it is expected to involve around 60 participants (with 11 main speakers) and contributed poster presentations.

We are accepting abstracts for poster presentations at ThresholdNetworks2019 at nottingham.ac.uk <mailto:ThresholdNetworks2019 at nottingham.ac.uk>

The registration fee for the conference is 100.00 GBP.

A “Tutorial Day” (covering key concepts in dynamical systems and network science) will also take place prior to the meeting (on July 21).  Some financial assistance may be available to assist graduate students who attend both the training workshop and the conference.
