Network Workbench

NWB is a portal for network science that promotes, tracks, enables, and teaches about network science. It is a workbench for network scientists.


Network Workbench

  • Vital Information:
  • Funded by a 3-year $1.1 million NSF grant
  • Established to create a workbench for network scientists
  • PIs are Katy Börner, Albert-László Barabási, Santiago Schnell, Alessandro Vespignani, Stanley Wasserman, and Eric Wernert
  • Targeting network science researchers, practitioners, and students

Supported in part by the NSF IIS-0513650 award.


Network Workbench

  • Software Team:
  • Team Lead: Wexia (Bonnie) Huang
  • Developer: Ben Markines
  • Developer: Bruce Herr
  • Algorithm Developer: Santo Fortunato
  • Algorithm Developer: Cesar Hidalgo

Network Workbench

  • Parts of the Network Workbench portal:
  • Research Tool – A flexible large-scale analysis, modeling, and visualization toolkit
  • SciMaps – Knowledge domain visualization
  • Bioinformatics research portal
  • Index of current papers in network science
  • Learning environment for new and future network science students
  • Access to diverse datasets
  • More to come…

Network Workbench

  • NWB Research Tool:
  • Built with the IVC Software Framework
    • Eclipse RCP-based framework
    • An empty shell for integration of diverse plug-ins
  • NWB core will be tested for biomedical, scientometrics, and physics research
  • Will be runnable over the web, on the desktop, and on the desktop with a back-end server

Network Workbench

Demo NWB Research Tool


Network Workbench

  • Features:
  • A tool to track and map science
  • Uses bibliography files to find who is influential and what areas are hot
  • Based on a paper written by Colin Murray, Weimo Ke, and Katy Börner entitled “Mapping Scientific Disciplines and Author Expertise Based on Personal Bibliography Files”
  • Presents exemplar maps of science
