*Modeling, Analyzing and Mining Feature-Rich Networks*

*Special Issue for *Applied Network Science

*Deadlines: *

Expression of interest: September 21, 2018

Full paper submission: October 28, 2018.

The growing availability of multirelational data gives rise to an
opportunity for novel characterization of complex real-world relations. The
design of innovative complex approaches is the key to enable a deeper
understanding of feature-rich networks, i.e., network models exposing
specific features able to enhance their expressive power. Some examples of
feature-rich networks are Multilayer Networks, Temporal and Heterogeneous
Networks, Knowledge Graphs, Probabilistic Networks and generic Attributed
Graphs. In this scenario, the need to expose and process domain-specific
features when facing critical real-world tasks can prompt researchers to
exploit the full potential of mining complex network structures. The aim of
this Special Issue is to provide an insight into innovative methods to
model, analyze and mine feature-rich networks inspired from different
fields, incentivizing domain-driven approaches that can drive the design of
novel network models.

You are invited to submit a contribution (regular manuscripts or review
article). Topics of interest for this special issue include (but are not
limited to):

·        Centrality and Ranking in Feature-rich Networks

·        Community Detection in Feature-rich Networks
