Gephi Research

Lead by a team of researchers and engineers, we contribute to the research in network exploration.

The Force Atlas layouts developed in collaboration with Sciences-Po Médialab are created to help the user making sense of a tangled web of data. We also started open collaborations with researchers in various projects like the FMSH e-Diaspora Atlas and the Stanford Mapping the Republic of Letters. We are finally willing to act as research partners or subcontractors for research teams who require an engineering expertise on Gephi technologies. Please contact us for more information.

Gephi Beer

We help the people to discover and get involved about Gephi. We regularly go to conferences, and help our members to organize events such as meetups and tutorials in their city.

How To Get In?

We are open to all kinds of organizations and corporations, academia, large and small, for-profit and not-for-profit, and individual members.
