In the past two decades scientific research has witnessed a remarkable increase on studies in this field. Applied to problems that span from biology to computer sciences, from economics to social sciences, complex networks are becoming increasingly pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of the complex networks approach that the workshop is 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 Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished papers/abstracts on their research in complex networks.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 Complex networks in Statistical Mechanics Emergence in Complex Networks Geometry in Complex Networks Interacting Social 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 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 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. Some works may be accepted as short papers and shall be limited to 8 pages maximum.
