Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center

The ARL Social Cognitive Network Academic Research Center (SCNARC) has been created and funded as a part of the US Army Network Science Collaborative Technology Alliance together with three other centers focusing on different kind of networks. The funding of SCNARC comes predominantly from the US Army and the Army Research Laboratory plays the key role in guiding the research directions of NS CTA. The principal member of the Center is Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute while the remaining members are CUNY, IBM TJ Watson Research Laboratory, and Northeastern University. The Center includes also collaborators from the Army Research Laboratory, Indiana University, University of Maryland, MIT, Northwestern University, University of Notre Dame and NYU. The Center will collaborate closely with other centers of the Network Science CTA.
