The fifth International Workshop on       Complex Networks and their Applications       November 30 - December 02, 2016 

Milan, Italy

Scope of the Workshop

The international workshop on Complex Networks and their Applications  aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners from different science communities working on areas related to complex networks. The workshop targets two types of contributions from prospective authors: Contributions dealing of theoretical tools and methods to solve practical problems as well as applications. Both contributions should stimulate interaction between theoreticians and practitioners.

Authors are encouraged to submit both theoretical and applied papers on their research in complex networks. Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

• Models of Complex Networks
• Structural Network Properties and Analysis
• Complex Networks and Epidemics
• Rumor Spreading
• Community Structure in Networks
• Formation of Complex Networks
• Generation of Complex Networks
• Community Detection in Complex Networks
• Motif Discovery in Complex Networks
• Visualization of Complex Networks
• Complex network mining
• Dynamics and evolution patterns of complex networks
• Community discovery in complex social networks
• Visual representation of complex networks
• Methodological problems in complex network studies
• Applications of complex network analysis


Two kind of contributions can be submitted : Abstract and Full paperWe will do our best to have mostly oral presentations of the selected contributions. However, both type of contributions can be accepted either for oral or poster presentation.
