Special Issue of the 5th International Workshop on Complex Networks and Their Applications
Lead Guest Editor: Chantal Cherifi
Guest Editor: Antonio Scala
The International Workshop on Complex Networks & their Applications is an annual forum bringing together researchers from a wide variety of fields ranging from Computational Social Science, to Economic Complexity, up to Bioinformatics. Fuelled by the skills and expertise of participants from these diverse research fields, this workshop allows for cross-fertilization between fundamental and applied research. It offers a unique opportunity to review current scientific work, unanswered but critical questions and formulate new directions in network science.
Rather than simply providing a collection of papers presented at the workshop, our intention here is to provide a perspective on the state-of-the-art in this dynamic field while covering a variety of topics capturing the atmosphere in the network science community.
