*Guest editor: Dariusz Krol, Bournemouth University (United Kingdom)

*Scope and aim of the Special Issue
Propagation and particularly error propagation are important features of every complex network. Studying this phenomenon enables us to better understand the spread of information in a network which in turn may lead to the improvement of its performance and robustness. The propagation characteristic depends heavily on the network topology and a clear so-called “butterfly effect” relationship. In response to many types of disturbances, propagation techniques play an important role in maintaining existing networks, e.g. electric power grids synchronisation, prediction of complex system behaviour, resource discovery and monitoring, biological invasions finding and damages determining, virus propagation control and restraining, social and large scale infrastructure networks decomposition and immunizing. Recently, enormous interest has been devoted to modelling cascading failures on the networks in quest of designing 'better' networks, not only robust to the random loss of nodes ('errors') like scale-free networks, but also less vulnerable to its fragility to the selective loss of the most connected ones ('attacks'). Many real-world networks have scale-free property and therefore there is a need to develop methods that would enable to protect them from both random errors and deliberate attacks.

The issue is intended to support the development of propagation paradigms stemming from the cross-fertilization of various research fields. Our aim is to highlight an ongoing research on different methodological and technological approaches regarding propagation phenomenon together with their applications on various domains.

We seek submissions of varied propagation strategies in the following (but not limited to):
• cascading failure and the damage assessment
• cellular and organic grids, agent colonies
• collective behaviour of social colonies
• complex network reliability estimation and improvement
• epidemic spreading and immune system proliferation
• knowledge propagation, coordination and integration
• nature-inspired approaches to propagation phenomenon
• robustness, vulnerability and immunizing
• self-adaptation and evolution
• self-organization and self-healing systems
