Categorical Foundations of Network Theory

A working meeting sponsored by the Foundational Questions Institute
and held in Torino, Italy at the ISI Foundation

Monday May 25th to Thursday May 28th, 2015


Network theory is a diverse subject which developed independently in several disciplines. It uses graphs with additional structure to model everything from complex systems to theories of fundamental physics.

This event aims to further our understanding of the mathematical theory underlying the relations between seemingly different networked systems. It's part of the Azimuth network theory project.
