Dear Socnetters,

I want to inform you about a network analysis event ("Language of Networks")
taking place in Linz / Austria from 09/01 - 09/07. In conjunction with this
year’s Ars Electronica Festival people from our Socnet community together
with artists, computer scientists, educators and policy makers will spend
two days discussing a plethora of topics ranging from networks and power to
information visualization.

The whole program with nice network illustrations you can download at:


Accompanying the symposium, an exhibition will present network
visualizations in two-dimensional and three-dimensional space. Spectacular
visualizations from the realms of business, medicine, society, sport, art
and culture will be shown.

One of the highlights will be the largest network ever visualized a 5 x 3
meter work by Vlado Batagelj.

Ulrik Brandes has done a 3-D visualization which will be presented on a XXL
media wall on the top of the Ars Electronica building. As far as I know this
is the first network graph ever shown in the public space.

The introductory lecture will be held by Lothar Krempel who also curated the
exhibition. The evening lecture will be done by Jeff Johnson.

Language of Networks is being produced jointly by FAS.research and Ars
Electronica. With scientific support from the Max Planck Institute for the
Study of Societies, Cologne (Lothar Krempel) and the Department of Commerce,
Trade and Marketing of the Johannes Kepler University, Linz (Gerhard Wührer)

* "Innovatives Österreich", a initiative from Austrian Federal Ministry for
Education, Science and Culture;

Best and enjoy!
