The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis 
(NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Tutorial, "Network 
Modeling," to be held February 4-6, 2019, at NIMBioS.

*Objectives:* This tutorial aims to introduce faculty, post-docs & 
graduate students to the topic of complex networks. The field has grown 
tremendously over the last 20 years and network science has found 
numerous applications to fields such as biology, ecology, social 
sciences, physical sciences, computer science, technology, and urban 
planning. The tutorial will review in detail the main ideas and methods 
in network science with emphasis on both conceptual aspects and 
real-world applications. Hands-on activities will help the audience 
familiarize themselves with practical ways to potentially incorporate 
network analysis in their own research. No prior knowledge of networks 
or programming is required.

*Location:* NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

*Co-Organizers:* Nina Fefferman , Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Univ. 
of Tennessee; Lazaros Gallos, DIMACS, Rutgers Univ.; Gonzalo Suarez, 
Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Univ. of Tennessee

For more information about the tutorial and a link to the online 
application form, go to http://www.nimbios.org/tutorials/TT_networks
Participation in NIMBioS tutorials is by application only. Individuals 
with a strong interest in the topic are encouraged to apply, and 
successful applicants will be notified within two weeks after the 
application deadline. Limited travel support is available for those with 
a demonstrated need.

*Application deadline: November 18, 2018*

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis 
(NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers from 
around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to 
investigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the life 
sciences. NIMBioS is supported by the National Science Foundation, with 
additional support from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
