Sandro Vega Pons attended the International Summer School on Complex Networks that was held in the Bertinoro Residential Centre of the University of  Bologna from July 14th to July 18th. The aim of the summer school was to provide an overview of both the foundations and state of the art in the field of Complex Networks. Lectures were presented by intellectual leaders in the field, and there were opportunities to interact closely with them during the school.

Complex networks are an emerging and powerful computational tool with an increasing number of applications in many fields of research including Neuroinformatics. They aim at capturing the structural properties of data represented as graphs or networks, providing  ways of characterising both  the static and dynamic facets of network structure. The topic draws on ideas from graph theory, statistical physics and dynamic systems theory.
