AMASES Summer School 2023



Department of  Social and Economic Science

Sapienza University of Rome

jointly organize the


Economic, Social and Financial Networks (ESFN)


Sapienza University of Rome — Building CU002 (Ex Scienze Politiche)

DATES: September  4-6,  2023


The last 25 years have witnessed a booming growth of interest toward the use of complex networks as a foundational tool to describe many social and economic systems since the structure of interactions has been shown to be critical in understanding collective and emerging phenomena. Importantly, complex networks offer avenues for methodological and mathematical research well beyond their versatility for modelling and exploring applied science contexts. Different disciplines have significantly contributed to the establishment of such a new paradigm and the school will present lectures from distinguished scholars in different fields.

The school’s aims are twofold. First, it aims at presenting a comprehensive view of the theoretical aspects of network theory, including graph theoretical concepts, probabilistic approaches, and combinatorial methods. The second aim is to present the effectiveness of such an approach to social, economic and financial systems, including systemic risk, polarization in social media, and financial time series.



The main target group is composed of PhD students and young postdocs working in quantitative areas. Younger (e.g. master students) and older (e.g. young researchers) will be considered as a potential audience.



  • Rosanna Grassi, (Università di Milano-Bicocca) — Network structures and topological indicators
  • Guido Caldarelli (Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia) — Financial networks
  • Roberto Casarin (Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia) — Network extraction and modelling
  • Fabrizio Lillo (Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna) — Statistical and probabilistic models of static and temporal networks
