Applied Network Science Special Issue on




Networks are ubiquitous in natural, technological and social systems. They offer a fertile framework for understanding and controlling the diffusion of ideas, rumors, and infectious diseases of plants, animals, and humans. Despite recent advances, many challenging scientific questions remain about the correct tools and their practical role in epidemics dynamics and effective strategies supporting public health decision making. The goal of this special issue is to offer a platform to the interdisciplinary community of scientists working on the diffusion process on networks and its plethora of applications. We hope for a broad range of topics to be covered, across theory, methodology, and application to empirical data with a special emphasis on epidemic spreading.

Survey and review papers are welcome.
