Porto Receives Carnegie Mellon Specialist on Dynamic Networks and Its Applications on Counter-Terrorism
Mellon University (CMU) faculty member and specialist on Dynamic Networks Kathleen
Carley will be delivering a keynote at the Workshop on Social Network Analysis
that will be held on October 6th at INESC TEC, in Porto. The specialist will talk
about Dynamic Network Analysis Using ORA, a dynamic meta-network assessment and analysis tool developed by the Center for
Computational Analysis of Social and Organizational Systems at CMU.
Additionally, researchers were invited to present
their work on Social Network Analysis and Professor Kathleen Carley will
moderate the discussion.
The Instituto de Engenharia de Sistemas e Computadores
- Tecnologia e Ciência senior researcher and CMU Portugal E4Value Entrepreneurial
Research Initiative Member Ana Barros, who is organizing the session, as well
as Faculty of Economics of the University of Porto Professor Pedro Campos,
reveal that the objective of the event “is to take the opportunity of having an
international specialist on Social Network Analysis in Portugal and to promote
the scientific work collaboration with the senior and younger researchers”.
Moreover, Pedro Campos highlights that Kathleen
Carley also conducts research on Agent Based Simulation, an area that has a
strong connection to health sciences, politics, sociology, counter-terrorism,
among others. “It is a very interesting approach on a subject that may have
several applications.” The CMU Professor has developed, for instance, models that
indicate the actions one should take, in order to survive to a terrorist
attack. Also, the specialist “has served as a task force member of the Defense
Science Board and as Committee Member on the Department of Homeland Security
Science and Technology”.
The session will be between from 10:00am untill 17:30pm
in Auditorium B of INESC TEC.
