Latin American Conference on Complex Networks



The aim of LANET is to provide with a forum to join all scientists who are somehow related to the research on Network Science in Latin America.

The rapid growth of the field of Network Science in the last two decades has manifested in the form of schools, workshops and conferences in Latin America. However, the creation of LANET as a stable and periodic forum devoted to Network Science will further spur the formation of research groups interested in the field and help to establish it as a discipline across Latin American Universities and Research Institutions.


We take the advantage of having together the best scientists working on Network Science during the LANET Conference and organize a School on Fundamentals and Applications of Network Science. The LANET School is normally held held at the Conference location before its beginning.


The THIRD EDITION will be co-organized by the Universidad del Pacífico (Peru) and Universidad Andina del Cusco (Peru) in Cusco (Peru). Note that the Conference has been moved to 2022, due to COVID restrictions (more information soon).
