Want to learn about biological, evolutionary and social interactions of species? To formulate and model species-interaction concepts? To cross disciplinary borders and share similarities and differences between social and natural sciences?

Four experts will guide you into the fascinating world of ecological, evolutionary and social networks of species and communities and help you to build and test computational models of species-interactions.

  • Mutualistic interactions:
    Ecology, Evolution and Conservation
  • Host-parasite interactions
  • Mutualistic networks
  • Interspecies-exchange
  • Computational approaches to study co-evolution of networks
