COSTNET is an EU funded COST Action to stimulate grassroots research collaborations on Statistical Network Science in Europe. It involves more than 700 researchers from across 34 countries in the EU. It has been active since 2016, and this meeting constitutes the final meeting of the Action. In this meeting, we aim to showcase the results from 4 years of collaborative research. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the meeting will be held online in 7 succinct sessions on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 September 2020. This conference is planned by the Department of Statistics at LMU Munich.

To register for the event, please write an informal mail to iris.burger@stat.uni-muenchen.de. If you have any questions, please contact marc.schneble@stat.uni-muenchen.de.
