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Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished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

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

Accepted abstracts of registered authors will be presented at the
conference but their abstract itself will not be included in the
Springer-Verlag book.
