The term network analysis is used to encompass a broad spectrum of methods for analyzing relational structures. Current application examples are
Thus, the goal of this seminar is to identify methods and problems that are relevant from a computer science perspective, and make them amenable to application-independent consideration. Our focus will be on graph-theoretic and algorithmic approaches; the various applications will serve as motivation, but will not be the main subject of interest.
Since 1997, the Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI) organizes research seminars on hot topics in computer science that are not appropriately represented in textbooks, yet.

Participants are selected mainly according to scientific qualification, i.e. not because of their special area of research, in order to widely spread such developments among academic institutions. The number of participants is typically limited to 20. So far, other GI-Dagstuhl-Seminars have been or are being organized on the following topics:
