WDN 2010: International Workshop on Dynamic Networks

WDN 2010

June 4th, 2010, Avignon, France.

In conjunction with WiOpt 2010

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 i snow 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 socila/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.
