Further information
  • Netsci2020 follows the no-repetition rule: NetSci 2020 invited speakers cannot be speakers at satellites, and contributed talks of the main conference cannot be repeated at satellites.
  • Satellite organizers will be responsible for all aspects of the symposium including (mandatory) registration to NetSci 2020 for all satellite participants and speakers.
  • All symposia will be listed in the conference program and linked/advertised on the website.
  • Selection of proposals will be performed by the Satellite Committee of NetSci 2020. In order to optimize Satellite Symposia in terms of scientific topics, visibility, and interactions, the Scientific Committee will reserve the option of merging selected proposals that focus on similar topics.
