Special Issue on: Community Structure in Complex Networks

Network Science is a powerful paradigm to better understand the complex systems encountered in many different disciplines such as physics, sociology, biology and computer science. One of the most relevant features of networked systems is community structure. Despite the tremendous effort of a large interdisciplinary community of scientists working on this subject over the past few years to characterize, model, and analyze communities in complex network is still a very hard problem that needs more investigations. Therefore, the primary goal of this special issue is to showcase the cutting edge research advances on community structures in complex network, in order to provide a landscape of research progresses and application potentials in related areas. Papers, of a broad nature, on various aspects of community structure with strong algorithmic innovations, but also application-oriented works are solicited. Topics relevant to this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

• Community models in networks
• Community structure evolution
• Community structure properties
• Community structure discovery
• Community and Epidemics
• Community in Economic networks
• Community and Rumor Spreading
• Community and Visual representation
• Community in Financial networks
• Community in Technology networks
• Community in Biological Systems
• Community in Social Networks
