Eighth IEEE International Workshop on Network Science for Communication Networks (NetSciCom) – Jointly organized with IEEE INFOCOM 2016, San Francisco, CA, USA.

NetSciCom 2016

About NetSciCom :

Network Science attracts the attention of a large number of researchers from across various disciplines, mainly due to its applicability in modelling the structure and dynamics of a wide variety of large-scale complex networks, ranging from genetic pathways and ecological networks to the Internet, WWW, peer-to-peer networks, blogs and online social networks, etc. Moreover, Network science has compelling applications in the field of (say) computer communication networks, electric power grid networks, transportation networks, social networks, and biological networks.
In the context of the digital-world, the communication and social networks have contributed immensely in generating Big Data pools. Data (say) logged from the Internet, p2p network, online social networks, scientific citations, protein interaction takes naturally the form of networks, often with a temporal/dynamic dimension. When this big data meets the recent advances of network science, decision makers gain an unprecedented insight from the emergent properties, constraints, phase transitions, and so on, that were previously hidden. Recently, data analytics techniques are used to learn the dynamics of massively large complex networks (e.g., link prediction, community formation) generated from large data. This has a substantial impact on the design of efficient, social aware communication systems.
Side by side, to design efficient large-scale communication networks of the future, it is imperative to understand the interdependency between the underlying physical network and the information networks that it intends to support. A deeper understanding of such interdependency can only be achieved by closer interaction between network scientists, communication network designers, and social and behavioral scientists.

The goal of NetSciCom workshop is to a provide a forum where this diverse group of researchers can come together and exchange ideas that will lead to deeper insights into the design of robust, efficient and complex communication networks of the future. Co-locating with IEEE INFOCOM 2016 provides an excellent platform for this intense discussion and exploration on wide spectrum of networks. The accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2016 workshop proceedings and appear in IEEE Xplore.

Call for paper:

In this workshop, we call for papers addressing the fundamental concepts of network science and also discuss the potential research directions and applications in computer communication and social network. We aim to gather together scientists and researchers conducting research on the network science, computer communication, data mining, data science and so on, with the stakeholders responsible for data-driven research. The workshop’s focus lies at the intersection of network science and communication network design. This workshop welcomes contributions from researchers working on the following topics of interest, including, but not limited to:
• Topology design and analysis
• Traffic modelling and traffic routing
• Authentication, security, privacy, trust in networks
• Internet of Things
• Fault tolerance, reliability and survivability
• Multiplex and interdependent networks
• Network robustness, resilience, phase transitions
• Delay tolerant networks
• Dynamic and time-varying networks
• Community detection and analysis
• Social networking and big data analytics
• Epidemics and rumours in networks
• Network evolution and growth mechanisms
• Information diffusion and knowledge transfer in networks

Important Dates:
Submission deadline: Sun, December 27, 2015
Acceptance notification: Fri, February 5th, 2016
Camera ready: Fri, February 26th, 2016
Program announcement: Fri, March 11th, 2016

Submission Details:

Papers should contain original material, i.e., that has not been previously published or currently submitted elsewhere. Manuscripts must be limited to 6 pages in IEEE 8.5x11 conference format, and formatted in strict accordance with the IEEE Communications Society author guidelines. All submissions will be handled electronically. Reviews will be single-blind: authors name and affiliation should be included in the submission. The accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2016 workshop proceedings and appear in IEEE Xplore.
