DYNAMICS ON AND OF COMPLEX NETWORKS VII
A Satellite Workshop of European
Conference on Complex Systems, 2014
Lucca, Italy, Wednesday, September 24,
Sala dell’Affresco (San Micheletto)
"Network Science" has recently attracted the attention of a large
number of researchers from across various disciplines, mainly due to
its ubiquitous applicability in modeling the structure and dynamics
of large-scale complex systems (both natural and man-made). Examples
of such systems, exhibiting complex interaction patterns among their
constituent entities, range from genetic pathways and ecological
networks to the WWW, peer-to-peer networks, and blogs and online
web-social networks (such as Facebook, Orkut and Twitter).
For the past five years, the primary aim of the series of workshops
"Dynamics on and of Complex Networks", held as a satellite meeting
of the European
Conference on Complex Systems, has been to explore the
(statistical) dynamics on and of such
complex networks. Dynamics on networks refers to the
different types of so called processes (e.g. proliferation,
diffusion etc.) that take place on networks. The
functionality/efficiency of such processes is strongly affected by
the topology as well as the dynamic behavior of the network. On the
other hand, Dynamics of networks mainly refers to
various phenomena (for instance self-organization, evolutionary
clustering) that go on in order to bring about certain changes in
the topology of the network.
This year's theme is on Big Data.
You can register for the workshop as well as the main conference here.
