Network Sciences


Network Sciences

Bring together government, industry and academic institutions to perform foundational, cross-cutting research for a fundamental understanding of interactions, interdependencies, and common underlying science among multi-genre (social/cognitive, information, and communications) networks. Prediction and control of the composite behavior of these complex interacting networks will ultimately enhance effectiveness of Army systems and operations.
