The Central Market Hall (Nagycsarnok) in Budapest.

The Circuits of Profit satellite workshop associated with NetSci2011 was mainly made up of network analysts that were also consultants or employed by private organisations. As I predicted in a previous post, the group spans a wide range of abilities and a wide range of perceptions. However, it was quite nice to see that network analysis is becoming more and more acceptable to large organisations because I’m hoping that means access to a larger range of more analysis-friendly data.

And of course, some very high-powered scientists were present. For me, the most impressive presentations were made by Harald Katzmair (Founder and Director of FAS Research). A very interesting and charismatic presenter who really understands analysis and modelling in networks. If a company needs a consultant to improve business processes and structures, this would be the best person to consult.
