            PRELIMINARY ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

                       NetSciCom 2010
       Second IEEE International Workshop on Network Science
                 For Communication Networks

             March 19, 2010 - San Diego, CA, USA
                http://netscicom2010.asu.edu/
                http://netscicom2009.asu.edu/
              In conjunction with IEEE Infocom 2010
=====================================================================

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
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.
