Summary: Harvard University’s Network Science is hosting NetSci07, a competition to discover new innovative ways of visualizing the complexities of networks of systems. (end summary).
Quoted from the Netsci07 website (Harvard)
“We are in desperate need to measure, model, manage, and understand the structure and function of large networked physical and information systems. Network science is an emerging, highly interdisciplinary research area that aims to develop theoretical and practical approaches and techniques to increase our understanding of natural and man made networks.”
“The visualization of networks plays an important role in the sense making of analytical results but also for the communication of results within and across disciplinary boundaries but also to the general public. While the visualization of static networks is supported by diverse commercial and research tools, the visualization of dynamic networks is an open research problem. “
