====================================================
        SIAM Workshop on Network Science (NS'16)                       
                 July 15 - 16, 2016
            The Westin Boston Waterfront
             Boston, Massachusetts, USA

                   CALL FOR PAPERS
       
             www.siam.org/meetings/ns16/
====================================================


SCOPE
=====

Network science has a rich history, tracing its roots back
through sociology, chemistry, biology, electrical engineering,
computer science, and topology all the way to Euler and the
K√∂nigsberg bridges nearly 300 years ago.  Network science
studies the mathematical structure of the graphs that arise in
these diverse fields, and the design, analysis, and applications
of algorithms that compute with and on them.  The goal of the
SIAM Network Science workshop is to promote cross-fertilization
among the communities that study and apply networks and graphs,
both inside and outside SIAM. 

NS'16 will be co-located in Boston with the 2016 SIAM Annual
Meeting (July 11-15) and the SIAM Conference on Life Sciences
(July 11-14). 


KEY DATES
=========

Submissions deadline:  February 25, 2016
Notification:  March 31, 2016
Preregistration and hotel deadline:  June 13, 2016
SIAM NS'16:  July 15-16, 2016


SUBMISSION
==========

Submission site:  easychair.org/conferences/?conf=siamns2016
Latex style:  siam.org/meetings/ns16/siam-wns-style.zip

We invite contributions focused on all aspects of mathematical,
algorithmic, and computational techniques in network science. 

The workshop will feature three formats for contributed
presentations: 25-minute talks, 5-minute lightning talks in the
"Ignite" format (5 minutes, 20 slides, 15-second auto-advance),
and posters.  The program committee will consider all
submissions for all three presentation formats. 

Submit a 2-page abstract using the LaTeX style files provided
on the NS'16 web site through the SIAM NS'16 EasyChair site.
Accepted abstracts will be posted online in late May 2016;
authors will be required to submit LaTeX source adhering to
the template in April 2016.


IGNITE TALK FORMAT
==================

The Ignite format is new for NS'16; see www.ignitetalks.io
for a description.  We especially want to use this format to
highlight work by early-career researchers.  If you feel your
submission is particularly appropriate for an Ignite talk,
please let us know using the checkbox on the EasyChair
submission page.
