Dear SOCNETters,this is a gentle reminder about this call for papers on interconnected networks.For more information you can visit the official web page:http://www.journals.elsevier.com/physica-d-nonlinear-phenomena/call-for-papers/special-issue-on-nonlinear-dynamics-on-interconnected-networ/The submission deadline is 30 May 2015.Feel free to circulate among potentially interested researchers and do not hesitate to contact us for further information.Thank you
Physica D: Nonlinear Phenomena
Special Issue On:
Nonlinear Dynamics on Interconnected Networks
During the last decade, important discoveries have shown that common patterns and self-organization emerge over and over again in many different complex systems. Interactions between system elements (species, individuals, genes, proteins, routers, etc.) that occur in real systems (physical, biological, social, communication, etc.) yield networks that share a large number of common features. The fundamental goals of the study of networks are to (1) describe the structure of interactions between components, (2) assess emergent behaviour that arises from such structure, (3) evaluate the effects of such structure on dynamical processes and on system function more generally, and (4) control and design networks to achieve desired outcomes. Thus, systems as diverse as peer-to-peer networks, neural systems, socio-technical phenomena, climate networks, and biological networks can be studied within a general unified theoretical and computational framework.
This special issue will accept papers about:
Structural properties of general networks, multilayer/interconnected/interdependent
Dynamical processes on general networks, multilayer/interconnected/interdependent
and submissions from different areas, e.g. computer science, engineering,
mathematics, physics, etc. are welcome.
