Fifth symposium on spatial networks (SSN5)

Friday 23rd OctoberFriday 23rd October 2020

This one day workshop will take place on Friday 23 October online.

Registrations have now closed.

Organisers: Michael Wilsher, Carl Dettmann and Justin Coon

Many networks are spatial in that nodes have a location and links are more common between closely spaced nodes.  Following events held in Oxford and Bristol in 2016-19 we are running a symposium (this year, online) on spatial networks and applications to diverse complex networks and wireless communications.  Contributions for research talks in the symposium in all areas relevant to spatial, complex and/or wireless networks and stochastic geometry are very welcome.  Information about the previous events can be found at


Confirmed keynote speakers:

The workshop will take place on a variety of platforms, with the main platform for the talks being on Zoom. For Zoom guidance please see the Zoom guidance participants

As we are unable to mingle in person this year, we will be using Remo on coffee breaks and the poster session. This informal gathering is to allow for speakers and attendees to meet up and socialise if they wish. 

Please see guidance video on how to use Remo.

We will also be using Slack, as a way for speakers and participants to communicate during the workshop. Guidance on Slack can be found here

The event will start at 9:30 finishing at 16:30.
