An even larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on  networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable discipline---including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, biology, and myriad others---and the study of "network science" has thus become a crucial component of modern scientific education.   The school "Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications" offers a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical developments and applications in targeted fields.     LECTURERS   .ALBERT-LASZLO BARABASI, Northeastern University and Harvard University .STEFANO BATTISTON, University of Zurich .ULRIK BRANDES, ETH Zurich .VITTORIA COLIZZA, Inserm & Universit?
