*** DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: February 18, 2018 ***
Many real systems can be modeled as networks, where the elements of the 
system are nodes and interactions between elements are edges. An even 
larger set of systems can be modeled using dynamical processes on  
networks, which are in turn affected by the dynamics. Networks thus 
represent the backbone of many complex systems, and their theoretical 
and computational analysis makes it possible to gain insights into 
numerous applications. Networks permeate almost every conceivable 
discipline---including sociology, transportation, economics and finance, 
biology, and myriad others---and the study of "network science" has thus 
become a crucial component of modern scientific education.
The school "Complex Networks: Theory, Methods, and Applications" offers 
a succinct education in network science. It is open to all aspiring 
scholars in any area of science or engineering who wish to study 
networks of any kind (whether theoretical or applied), and it is 
especially addressed to doctoral students and young postdoctoral 
scholars. The aim of the school is to deepen into both theoretical 
developments and applications in targeted fields.
