Izquierdo, University of Burgos Martin Warnke, Leuphana University Lueneburg Description ----------- The 4th international workshop on complex networks (CompleNet 2013) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on areas related to complex networks. In the past two decades we have been witnessing an exponential increase on the number of publications in this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that this workshop aims at addressing. Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished papers/abstracts on their research in complex networks. Both theoretical and applied papers are of interest. Specific topics of interest are (but not limited to): Applications of Network Science Behavioral & Social Influence Community Structure in Networks Complex Networks in Technology Complex Networks and Epidemics Complex Networks and Mobility Complex Networks in Biological Systems Emergence in Complex Networks Geometry in Complex Networks Information Spreading in Social Media, Link Analysis and Ranking Modeling Human Behavior in Complex Networks Models of Complex Networks Network Evolution Networks as Frameworks Rumor Spreading Search in Complex Networks Shocks and Bursts Social Networks Structural Network Properties and Analysis Synchronization in Networks Publication ----------- Original papers/abstracts in the above-mentioned and other related areas will be considered. Each submitted paper/abstract will be fully refereed and undergo a double-blind review process by at least two referees. Accepted papers (not abstracts) of registered authors will be published in the workshop proceedings to be published by Springer-Verlag on the Studies in Computational Intelligence Series. Accepted abstracts of registered authors will be presented at the conference but their abstract itself will not be included in the Springer-Verlag book. Instructions for Submissions ----------------------- Submit your paper/abstract electronically in PDF format. Neither hardcopy nor fax submissions will be accepted. Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper formats such as A4 or letter. Submitted papers/abstracts should follow the Springer format (please visit website for more details). Abstracts length should not exceed 2 pages. Papers should not exceed 12 pages in this format.
