The article, entitled “The virality and growth of cascades” has been accepted as an oral presentation at NetSci-X 2020, Tokyo. Two members of the Web Mining Lab, Mr. Yafei Zhang and Prof. Jonathan Zhu, participated in this study.

In this work, they proposed a novel approach to characterize the virality of cascades and introduced a more realistic model to mimic the growth of cascades. This work is an output of collaboration with a team of scientists from control science and engineering at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Mr. Yafei Zhang is now a joint PhD student co-supervised by Prof. Jonathan Zhu at City University of Hong Kong and Prof. Xiaofan Wang at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

NetSci-X, the Network Science Society‘s signature winter conference, aims to foster interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in network science research across computer and information sciences, physics, mathematics, life sciences, social sciences, arts and design. The coming NetSci-X conference will be held in Tokyo, Japan from January 20 to 23, 2020.
