Scope

Network Science is a newly emerging discipline with applications in a variety of domains, such as, Communication Networks, Power Grid Networks, Transportation Networks, Social Networks, Biological Networks, Complex Networks and Economics. Designing complex communication networks of the future needs a deep understanding of the interplay between the physical- the communication- and the social networks involved. An understanding of such interdependency can only be achieved by closer interaction between Network Scientists, Communication Network Designers, and Social and Behavioral Scientists. The goal of this workshop is to a provide a forum where this diverse group of researchers can meet and exchange ideas that will lead to deeper insights into the design of robust, efficient and complex communication networks of the future.

Topics of Interest

The topics of this workshop lie at the intersection of Network Science and Communication Network Design - including Topology Design and Analysis, Traffic Modeling, Traffic Routing, Social Media Analysis: blogs and friendship networks, Bio-inspired networks, Internet scale measurement and analysis of online communities, Social network analysis with mobile phone data, Interdependency between power grid, communication and transportation networks.
