Call For Papers

General Information

Cnet 2011 is the first workshop at ITC on complex network theory and its application to communication engineering. The concept is arising from random graph theory and statistical physics and constitutes a very important, rapidly growing branch of modern teletraffic theory.

The workshop will cover all aspects of modeling, analysis, and control of complex infrastructures ranging from purely theoretical achievements to practical applications regarding the design of next generation networks.

The objective is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners working in different disciplines to present innovative theoretical results and to illustrate recent development regarding modeling and analysis tools to detect complex structures and to control them in a decentralized or self-organized manner. Fresh ideas will be exchanged and open problems and new directions will be discussed.

The workshop is co-located with the 23rd International Teletraffic Congress (ITC 2011).


Cnet 2011 solicits novel unpublished material on modeling, analysis and control of complex networks including (but not limited to) the following topics:

Modeling and Analysis of Communication Infrastructures
o analysis of random graph models and multiplicative stochastic processes
o percolation properties of equilibrium and growing networks
o characterization, inference and evolution of topologies
o robustness and vulnerability of network infrastructures
o influence and epidemic spreading in complex networks
o investigation of scalability properties
o algebraic and graph-theoretical partitioning techniques and spectral optimization of modularity concepts
o formation of communities and their algorithmic detection

Control of Complex Networks
o emergence properties of real networks
o control methods and algorithms for complex networks
o synchronization in complex networks
o signaling and distributed control protocols

Inference and Design Algorithms for NGNs
o inference of complex network properties in deployed infrastructures
o structural inference and analysis of the user behavior in social networks
o immunization strategies for NGNs
o tools supporting analysis, inference and prediction of complex networks


Authors should prepare a PDF version of their paper not exceeding 8 double-column pages in IEEE conference format with a font size not smaller than 10 points. They should submit the paper electronically before the deadline via EDAS at URL:

All accepted contributions will appear as full papers in the conference proceedings and require a registration of at least one co-author as workshop participant by the author registration deadline.

It is planned to consider extended versions of the papers for publication in the journal ''Computer Communications''.
