Note that we will send a last call a few days before the official deadline on 1st March 2016 Feel free to redistribute among interested partners, students and young researchers in complex networks and to contact the Organizers for further details. 3rd Mediterranean School of Complex Networks http://mediterraneanschoolcomplex.net/ In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems. The Mediterranean School of Complex Networks is a well-established appointment to learn about recent advances in Network Science from leading experts. The goal of the school is twofold: i) Provide a theoretical background to students (Master, PhD) and young researchers in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science; ii) Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants. For this reason, the program will consists of lectures from network experts for almost the whole the duration of the school, while alternating with short talks given by attendants and debates.
