Scope and Topics

The dynamical evolution of complex networks and ongoing processes are one of the hottest contemporary directions in Network Science. The main aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in this field focusing on the description, observation, and modeling of the dynamics on and of networks. “Dynamics on networks” refers to the different types of processes (e.g. proliferation, diffusion, random walk, etc.) that take place on networks, with functionality/efficiency strongly affected by the topology as well as the dynamics of interactions. On the other hand, “Dynamics of networks” mainly refers to time-varying interactions, which defines temporal networks on the finest possible level, which are crucial to understand the evolution and the emerging properties of complex networks. It has become clear that properties such as stability, robustness, connectivity, etc. depend on the temporal evolution of networks driven by higher order structural and temporal correlations.

A motivation of the workshop is also to bring together scientists interested in the development of methodologies to study complex networks and data on graphs, especially in the domains of computer science, graph-theoretical algorithms, graph-signal processing, data analytics, physics, computational social science, epidemiology, econometrics and social network theory.

The workshop expects multi-disciplinary research contributions to study common problems in systems exhibiting a complex network structure (e.g., biological systems, linguistic systems, social systems and various other man-made systems like the Internet, WWW, peer-to-peer systems etc.). Accordingly, one of the major goals of the workshop is to build bridges between different research areas and their corresponding communities.

Invited speakers:

  • Kimmo Kaski (Aalto University, Finland)
  • Renaud Lambiotte (University of Namur, Belgium)
  • Nicola Perra (Greenwich University, UK)
  • Alejandro Ribeiro, TBC (University of Pensilvania, USA)
  • Camille Roth, TBC (CNRS, Centre Marc Bloch, Germany)

Submission of abstracts:

We invite you to submit a one or two-page abstract.

Submissions are expected via the following EasyChair submission link:

It is required that at least one author of each accepted contribution register and attend the workshop to present the corresponding work. Registration also assures the participation to the workshop in case of limitations due to high participation number.

Network Science Thematic Semester:

The thematic semester on Network Science is organized by the DANTE Inria team (Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard (Lyon 1), CNRS, Laboratoire de l’Informatique du Parallélisme -- UMR5668), the SiSyPhe team (Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard (Lyon 1), CNRS, Laboratoire de Physique -- UMR5672), the Centre de Physique Théorique -- UMR-7332, the Excellence Laboratory MILYON — Mathematics and Fundamental Computer Science in Lyon, the Institute of Scientific Interchange -- (ISI) and the IXXI (Complex Systems Institute in Rhône-Alpes).

This program intends to cover both the basics of and recent advances in Network Science and Data Analytics for Networks. In this program, we aim to bring together world-known experts from the fields of mathematics, physics, signal processing, computer science, social science, epidemiology and linguistic to discuss and enhance our understanding about the interaction between the structure, evolution, and coupled dynamical processes of complex networks.

We welcome participants from graduate student level to the level of experts in the subject. Limited number of travelling support for students is available (through the organizers).
