Call for Papers

Large-scale  networks   with  complex  interaction  patterns   between
elements are found in abundance in Communication Networks like: social
networks, blog & collaborative  networks, WWW, P2P, DTN, Sensors... In
the last decade many research efforts  contributed to establishing the
concept  of a network  science   to characterize,  model,  and analyze
complex networks. Network Science founds applications  in a variety of
domains  and   show a  mainstream   research  topic  of  interest  for
theoretical physicists,  epidemiologists,   biologist, economists, and
computer scientists.

For the communication networking community  there is a strong research
interest in the analysis  of the structure  and properties  of dynamic
networks  at several layers: network/communication  layers but also at
the  social/application  layers. Understanding  how the  interplay  of
these different layers of complex  networks happens and the  potential
mutual effects they may have on each other  in a dynamic graph context
is a key challenge.

This workshop aims to exchange and discuss ideas on the complex systems
field, mainly oriented (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Bio-inspired networks
- Correlation of different types of social networks
- Delay tolerant and disruption tolerant networks (DTN)
- Discrete optimization and algorithms
- Dynamical processes (proliferation, diffusion etc.)
- Game theoretic models, pricing and incentives on dynamic networks
- Implications of social networking on distributed network/systems
- Mobility modeling and management
- Robustness & Stability of dynamical networks
- Sensor Networks
- Social networks
- Characterizing and analyzing dynamic networks
- Tools and methods   for collecting, analyzing, or  visualizing  data
from dynamic networks
