5th International Workshop on Network Theory: Network Science Meets the Science of Teams

Although teams have been an integral part of how society has organized for centuries, the digital revolution is dramatically changing the nature of how teams assemble and interact. Indeed, teams are considered critical in addressing the grandest societal challenges of our day. There is an increasing awareness that network science has the potential for offering important theoretical and methodological insights in understanding and enabling 21st century team performance. This workshop sought to catalyze a dialog among a community of thought leaders on teams and multi team systems, network theory, and computational science.

NICO was a co-organizer of this event.
