Centre for Networks and Collective Behaviour

Centre for Networks and Collective Behaviour

The Centre for networks and collective behaviour (CNCB) provides a focus and forum for the discussion of research where issues of network connectivity or collective behaviour between individuals arise.

Our members come from departments across the University, and their research encompasses fields as diverse as genetic regulation and communication infrastructure.

Seminars are held bi-weekly on Thursdays at 14:15 in 4 West 1.7, followed by tea, coffee and biscuits (or cake if you're lucky) in the 4 West social area on level 4.

Visit the CNCB calendar page for details of current (and past) activities.
