The 5th edition of the Belgian Network Research Meeting (BENet) will be held at the Université de Namur (UNamur) on September 30, 2015.


The purpose of this annual gathering is to foster communication among Belgian researchers employing the network paradigm on their work, regardless of their discipline: sociology, economics, communication, history, biology, physics, medicine, informatics, etc.  Previous editions were held in Brussels (ULB 2014), Leuven (IIS/KUL 2013), Antwerpen (UA 2012) and Brussels (VUB 2011).


Thanks everyone for your participation and for making this a very interesting meeting.

See you at BENet next year in Louvain-la-Neuve!


Invited Speaker

DIRK BROCKMANN (Institute for Theoretical Biology, Humboldt University Berlin)
