Call for Papers

                         2011 IEEE 1st International Workshop on

                                    Network Science (NSW 2011)


                  June 22-24, 2011 -- West Point, New York, USA




Important Dates

  Submission of papers:     March 7, 2011

  Notification to authors:     April 8, 2011 

  Camera-ready papers:      May 6, 2011


Scope of the Workshop


  Models of networks and their characteristics are essential in the study of

  numerous fields, and are itself a subject of research employing approaches

  from different disciplines. Despite disparate methods, commonalities arise

  in often non-obvious ways, making the exchange under a shared Network

  Science framework desirable. In continuation of the previous West Point

  Network Science Workshops, IEEE NSW will therefore bring together

  researchers and professionals from academia, industry, and government

  interested or involved in Network Science for information and communication

  technologies (ICT). The workshop will be organised into three tracks

  according to the primary domains: 


  - Information Delivery and Sharing (including Command and Control)

  - Networks and Infrastructure (Including CIKR)

  - Innovations in Social, Cognitive, and Biologically-Inspired

    Aspects of Complex Networks


  Full research papers, work-in-progress reports, R&D projects results,

  surveying works and industrial experiences describing significant

  advances are invited from areas including but not limited to the



   - Biologically-Inspired Systems and Networks

   - Command and Control Systems

   - Communication Networks

   - Complex Networks

   - Dependency and Interdependency Models

   - Economic and Financial Networks and Systems

   - Epidemiology in ICT Networks

   - Hybrid Physical-Information Networks

   - Information Epidemics 

   - Network Theory

   - Physical Infrastructure Networks

   - Social-Computational Systems

   - Visualisation of Networks 


Instructions for Paper Submission


  All full submissions will be subjected to a thorough, blind peer review

  by at least three reviewers. Papers should be up to 8 pages in English,

  including bibliography and well-marked appendices and must not contain

  obvious references to authors in title or references. Proceedings will be

  published by IEEE both in printed form and via IEEE Xplore.  At least one

  author of each accepted paper is required to register with the Workshop

  and present the paper. To submit a paper, please follow the specific

  instructions posted on the Workshop website

  ( The submitted paper (in PDF or PostScript

  format), which should follow the template indicated by IEEE


  must start with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. Papers

  must be anonymised with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgements,

  or obvious references to prior work.


  Submissions may be as Full Papers of up to 8 pages, Short (Poster) Papers

  of up to 4 pages, or Position Papers of up to 8 pages. While papers in

  all three categories will be published in the printed conference

  proceedings, only full and short papers will be included in IEEE Xplore

  after rigorous review.
