Emerging network sciences (interdisciplinary science of networks of
networks) aim at discovering/identifying, formalizing/representing and
analyzing common processes and phenomena underlying physical, chemical,
biological, communication, social and cognitive networks. The fundamental
objective of this emerging interdisciplinary field is to propose predictive
models of these processes and phenomena in these networks that are characterized
as adaptive, interdependent, unpredictable, nonlinear, and dynamic. From this
perspective, a fundamental question arises as how interdependent network systems
can be designed to support unpredictable disturbance and unexpected changes when
vulnerable to natural disasters, (un)voluntary disruptions, malfunctions, and
changes in its usage patterns due to socio-economic or technological changes.
The latter changes could also impact operations for system maintenance as
operators running an infrastructure might operate differently than system design
assumes. For this purpose, a better understanding of the aforementioned properties characterizing interdependent networks requires to first capture the fundamental interplay between sustainability, resilience and robustness.

Workshop Objective:
Technical networks exhibit many inter-dependencies which are complex to measure and model but also lead to multi-objective decision problems where uncertainty becomes the transversal notion to capture. To this end, understanding the fundamental interplay between sustainability, resilience, and robustness becomes essential in order to rejuvenate and/or improve current design and evaluation methods that are currently unable to cope with this fundamental dimension.

Authors are invited to submit papers that describe state-of-the-art research, present work-in-progress, or suggest open problems covering one or more of the topics of interest to the workshop:

- Case studies including natural disasters, (un)voluntary disruptions,
malfunctions, failures, etc. in (inter-dependent) network
- Data analysis for inter-dependent networks: life stat. distributions,
parametric and non-parametric methods, life data classification,
competing failure modes analysis, multivariate data analysis
- Quantitative methods, mathematical models, criteria and metrics for
ecological network analysis
- Robust optimization of large-scale (inter-dependent) networks
- Robust decision methods for resilient (inter-dependent) networks
- Stochastic optimal/adaptive control of energy-aware networks
- Formal methods and mathematical models for network resiliency analysis
at multiple time and space scale
- Energy-aware resilient (inter-dependent) networks
- Game theoretic and economic analysis of sustainability-vs-resilience
- Predictive simulation and uncertainty quantification

Important dates:
- Paper submission deadline: May 27, 2015
- Notification deadline: June 25, 2015
- Camera-ready: July 10, 2015

We invite submissions (via EDAS) of original contributions of 4-8 pages,
formatted according to the IEEE two-column conference template.

Workshop Chairs:
- Dimitri Papadimitriou, Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, BE
- Bart Lannoo, iMinds, University of Ghent, BE
- Heiko Niedermayer, TU Munich, DE
