The primary goal of the NetGloW conference series is to bring together networks researchers from around the globe. It seeks to unite the efforts of various scientific disciplines in response to the key challenges faced by network studies today, and to exchange local research results  thus allowing an analysis of global processes. It is also crucial for us to support the orientation of junior researchers in the complex landscape of network science, and to encourage applications of network analysis by practitioners.
The idea of the 2014 event is to discuss the key current issues and problems of linking theoretical and methodological developments in network analysis.
