Topic: Networks in real life.

Audience: The reading group Practical Networks is intended for researchers in mathematics and computer science interested in networks, but anyone can attend online.

Practical details: The sessions are held every third Wednesday from 10:30 am to 11:30 pm (Central European Summer Time), in the premises of the Lincs and online. To receive the invitations, register to the mailing list. Videos, slides and notebooks of previous sessions are on the website.

Coordinator: Francesca Bassi (


In the reading group Practical Networks, members present works from the scientific or technical literature to the other members. Our field of interest covers all practical aspects that can be insightful for researchers dealing with real-life networks (telecommunication networks, social networks, power grids, etc).

Here is a non-exhaustive list of topics: content distribution and services, metrology, wireless networks, internet of things, artificial intelligence.

As a speaker:

  • You may present a paper, a set of papers, a book chapter, or prepare a short introduction course to a given topic.
  • You do not need to be a specialist of what you present.
  • Please do not present your own work.
