Call for Contributions:
You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to CompleNet 2017, 8th Conference on Complex Networks (www.complenet.org), to take place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on March 21st-24th, 2017.

The 8th International Conference on Complex Networks (CompleNet 2017) aims at bringing together researchers working on areas related to complex networks. 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 their contributions on their research in complex networks. Both theoretical and applied contributions 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 and Epidemics
Complex Networks and Mobility
Complex Networks in Biological Systems
Complex Networks in Technology
Complex networks in Statistical Mechanics
Dynamics on Networks
Ecological Networks and Food Webs
Emergence in Complex Networks
Geometry in Complex Networks
Impact and Success Prediction
Information Spreading in Social Media
Interacting Social Networks
Link Analysis and Ranking
Modeling Human Behavior in Complex Networks
Models of Complex Networks
Multiplex Networks
Network Controllability and Observability
Network Evolution
Networks as Frameworks
Rumor Spreading
Science of science
Search in Complex Networks
Shocks and Bursts
Social Networks
Structural Network Properties and Analysis
Synchronization in Networks
Network Visualization
Language Variation and Language Use
Language and Information Diffusion

Kind of contribution
Complenet accepts contributions in the form of papers (not previously published) and of original abstracts. Each submitted paper/abstract will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least two referees.
