Pedro Ribeiro – DCC/FCUP, University of Porto

The course is organized by CLAD (Portuguese Association for Classification and Data Analysis) and proposes an introduction to the Analysis and Visualization of Complex Networks. In recent years, Network Science has emerged as a powerful and very important academic area that studies complex networks of various origins, such as telecommunications networks, biological networks, social networks, semantic networks or computer networks. It has a multidisciplinary vision that aggregates theory and methods from areas such as graph theory, statistics, computer science, sociology or data visualization. An introduction to Network Science will be given, together with a historical perspective, and the fundamental concepts and most used methods will be addressed, complemented with examples and practical activities of analysis and visualisation.

All potential users of data (teachers, researchers, students and professionals from other areas) who wish to represent, analyse and visualise networks for a better characterisation and understanding of the underlying phenomena.
