Statistical Inference for Complex Networks Workshop, December 3-5, 2008, Santa Fe NM

Organizers: Aaron Clauset (SFI) and Cris Moore (UNM & SFI)

The agenda will be posted once it has been finalized.

Until then, the basic plan (sketched below) will be to have one "plenary" style talk (at the beginning of the day) on a general inference-related topic, followed by 4-5 short research talks. Lunch will be followed by a general discussion, which will be followed by unstructured time for small-group discussion and time for collaboration and interaction.

Agenda: Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
