EpiFor team participated to NetSci2010, the International School and Conference on Network Science that took place at the Northeastern University in Boston and at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA, USA, May 10-14.

NetSci is the annual meeting of the community of Network Scientists. Bringing together leading researchers, practitioners, and teachers in network science (including analysts, modeling experts, visualization specialists, and others), NetSci fosters interdisciplinary communication and collaboration. The conference focuses on novel directions in networks research within the biological and environmental sciences, computer and information sciences, social sciences, finance and business.

NetSci is structured in a 2 days School, followed by a 3 days Conference, dedicated to talks presenting the latest results in the field and their applications in various disciplines.
