Workshop: Innovation in dynamic network modelling

We are pleased to invite you to join us for a workshop on “Innovation in dynamic network modelling”, held at Università della Svizzera Italiana on September 11-13, 2024. The workshop starts at 14:00 on Wednesday 11 September and finishes after lunch on Friday 13 September 2024.

This workshop centres around the latest advancements in dynamic network modelling, with a specific focus on innovation and patent citation analysis. It aims to cover a broad range of topics from relational event modelling to latent space modelling, providing a platform for discussing theoretical advancements and practical applications in dynamic network analysis.


The workshop will focus on three key themes:

  1. Relational Event Modeling
  2. Patent citations and innovation
  3. Latent space dynamic networks

The study of network structures has become increasingly important in fields such as economics, epidemiology, ecology, and biology. However, analyzing complex networks remains a challenge, even with big data.
