Network dynamics in society, culture, and politics: Balance and Conflict

This symposium, the third in a series of three this semester, explores the convergence among data sciences, network dynamics, and social sciences in conflict and communication. We discuss both basic science and practical challenges, including real-world empirical studies, across a wide range of examples.
