The 8th Annual Workshop on Simplifying Complex Networks for
Practitioners (SIMPLEX'16)
November 8, 2016
In conjunction with IEEE ICNP 2016

Network science, sometimes also called "complex networks science", has
recently attracted much attention from the scientific community,
mainly due to the almost ubiquitous presence of complex networks in
real-world systems. Examples of complex networks are found in living
organisms, in engineering systems, as well as in social networks. Most
of the real-world systems have the required degree of complexity to be
called "complex systems". Complexity may have to do with the intricate
dynamics of the interacting components, with the non-trivial
properties of the underlying network topology, or with the sheer size
of the system itself. Despite the numerous workshops and conferences
related to network science, it is still a set of loosely interacting
communities. Those communities would benefit from better interactions.

Simplex aims at triggering different computer science communities
(e.g. search, web and social media, communication networks,
distributed systems) to propose research areas and topics that should
be tackled from the network science perspective. We also seek
contributions from network science that are relevant to solve
practical computer networking and protocol problems. Two types of
contributions are foreseen from prospective authors. The first type
would consist of use-cases of theoretical tools and methods to solve
practical problems. Such contributions should be as usable as possible
by practitioners in the related field. The second type of
contributions would come from practitioners who have identified a
problem that may be solved by tools from network sciences. The point
of such contributions is to make the network sciences community aware
of the importance of a high-impact problem, and to suggest means by
which the problem in networked systems may be solved by the network
sciences community. Both contributions should stimulate interaction
between theoreticians and practitioners, and also have high potential
impact in either field. We encourage submissions to be

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Data mining of large scale networks;
- Application of complex network theory to the design of distributed
and mobile systems;
- Analysis of dynamic and time-varying networks;
- Network robustness to failures and attacks;
- Machine learning and network science;
- Complex network theory applied to forwarding/routing problems;
- Application of social network analysis to communication and
computing system design;
- Mobility and connectivity modeling;
- Multiplier and multiplexing networks analysis;
- Heterogeneous networks analysis and applications;
- Network science and data & information retrieval;
- Complex network theory and security applications;

Authors are encouraged to submit full papers describing original,
previously unpublished research, not currently under review by another
conference or journal, addressing state-of-the-art research and
development in all areas of network science. Papers must be submitted
electronically in EasyChair
( The length of
papers must be no more than 6 pages, including tables and figures. The
cover page must contain an abstract of about 150 words, name and
affiliation of author(s) as well as the corresponding author's e-mail
and postal address. Each submission will receive at least three
independent blind reviews from the TPC. At least one of the authors of
every accepted paper must register and present their work at the
workshop. The technical program committee will select one winner for
the *Best Paper Award* and one winner for the *Best Paper Runner-up*.
