Technical Workshop SeriesGraph Mining in Python Using NetworkX (Final)

Presenter:  – PhD Candidate Mahshad Hashemi

Date: Tuesday, December 5th , 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Location: 4th Floor (Workshop space) at 300 Ouellette Avenue (School of Computer Science Advanced Computing Hub)



In previous workshops, we covered Graph Theory and some of the common real-life problems that are solved using Graph Theory. Also, we introduced NetworkX and its fundamental functions of it. In this workshop, we will continue with more special cases and scenarios.

At the end of this workshop, students will be able to use NetworkX package for creation, manipulation, and study of the structure, dynamics, and functions of complex networks.


Workshop Outline:

  • Dijkstra
  • Bellman Ford
  • Betweenness Centrality
  • Closeness Centrality
  • Bipartite sets

Basic knowledge of Python and fundamentals of Graph Theory
