NetSci14–the Albert-Moreno-Newman interviews

guest post by Mauro Faccin

(friendly intro, something like this…) I’ve made it here to NetSci14 in Berkeley California and I’m having a fantastic time! The event is surprisingly large and the talks have been very interesting. As you recall, I organized a satellite meeting on Quantum Frontiers in Network Science on the first day.

You might recall from the satellite announcement the view of downtown San Francisco at dusk from Berkeley Hills California from the NetSci homepage:

It’s even better in person!

I’ve decided to put together a short list of interview question and to ask a few of the attendants these questions in short interview format.

There were a few people attending the workshop that have influenced some of the network theory work happening here on Azimuth. These include

So I’ve decided to interview them. In Newman 2006 we can find all of them tightly connected in the coauthorship network of scientist related to this topic:

There are only a few questions and I asked them to respond in 20 words or less. Still, the responses are interesting and it might give you a feel of the enticement experienced here at this big meeting. The questions are

Current (template) Interview Questions

  • What was your talk about? Do you have a link to your slides so blog readers can take a look?

  • What do you consider the most surprising or unexpected thing/talk/announcement which took place at NetSci14?

  • What do you think is an important (even long term) future challenge for network science?

  • At the Azimuth project, we have worked a lot on general frameworks for networks, chemical reaction networks and of course, quantum networks. What do you think would be interesting for us to better approach complex network science?
