NetworKit is maintained by the Research Group Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems of the Institute of Computer Science at the Humboldt-University of Berlin. It was seeded by the project Parallel analysis of dynamic networks – Algorithm engineering of efficient combinatorial and numerical methods, for which we acknowledge financial support by MWK Baden-Württemberg. In this project Henning Meyerhenke was the principal investigator and Christian L. Staudt was the main PhD student. Since NetworKit’s start in 2013, it has grown well beyond the original MWK project and our group, with contributors and users from all over the world.
