Program for Networks in Economics Satellite @ Networks21 Conference

This year, I’ll be organizing a satellite event at the Networks21 conference, the major 2021 event bringing together all network scientists — merging the Sunbelt and the NetSci crowds for the first time! The satellite will be about network applications on research about economic development and innovation. The most excellent Morgan Frank and Lingfei Wu are the other engines behind this project. I briefly introduced it in this earlier post.

I’m glad to report that now we have a final roster of participants. We received several abstracts for the contributed talks and we managed to squeeze eight of them in our program. What follows is the current schedule — minor changes might happen due to author constraints and I will try to keep this post up to date. Note that the satellite will happen Wednesday, June 30, 2021, and all times reported are US East coast time.
