Abstract [en]

Life, at many levels, is about large connected systems. In the biological sense, life is a consequence of macromolecules building cells and carrying information. More mundanely, our everyday life happens amid a network of friends, acquaintances and colleagues. To understand life, at every level, we need to zoom out from macromolecules or friendships and look at their global organization from a distance. Here, zooming out means discarding less relevant information in a systematic way. One approach to this, successful the last decade, is network modeling. This means that one focusses on the units of the system, be it proteins or persons, and how they are connected, and nothing else. Of course, this is a very strong simplification. Often, one has more information about a system that would enrich rather than obscure the picture. One such additional type of information regards when the interactions happen between the units. The essence of temporal network modeling is to zoom out by excluding all information except which pairs of units are in contact and when these contacts happen.
