What is SNRG?

SNRG is a reading group that holds weekly meetings to discuss interesting papers and problems, generally related to social networks. Feel free to attend meetings and participate in discussions. All ideas about problems, papers, talks, etc. are welcome. Meetings usually start with stating an interesting problem without getting into possible solutions, and then following up possible approaches to previously stated problems. An informal talk by a volunteer follows, and attendants discuss about the paper(s) as the speaker proceeds. Finally, possible applications of and extensions to the approach are discussed.

When, where, and how?

Currently, in the second Winter term of 2016/2017, meetings are held on Monday 2:00-3:30 pm in ICICS 304 .
