The 10th edition of the Belgian Network Research Meeting (BENet) will be organised by the naXys Institute at the University of Namur (UNamur). The event will be held at the University of Namur on November 18, 2021. We will have three keynotes speakers: Ginestra Bianconi (Queen Mary University of London) and Alice C. Schwarze (University of Washington), who will deliver their talks online, and Micheal Schaub (RWTH Aachen University), who will be physically present at the workshop.

The purpose of this annual event is to foster communication predominantly among Belgian researchers employing network science on their work, regardless of their discipline: sociology, economics, communication, history, biology, physics, medicine, computer science, mathematics and more.

Please contact for more information.


The registration is free of charge but mandatory. To register, please send an email to by November 10, 2021.
