Many real networks are embedded in space, either explicitly, as in airport and urban networks, or in a hidden fashion, like latent distances underlying the AS Internet or molecular interactions in the cell. The study of how space shapes the structure and function of these networks has become a hot topic, leading to the emergence of Network Geometry. Advances in this area unleash an unprecedented potential for mapping real networks and for practical applications of high impact in society. 

The Macfang workshop focuses on the role of space in complex networks. We bring exciting speakers from around the world to foster a leading collaborative view on the emergent field of Network Geometry. A number of topics will be covered, including but not limited to multiplex network geometry, distance-based link prediction, geometric networks at criticality, emerging geometries of evolving networks, and the importance of space in processes such as disease propagation.
