SIMPLEX 2013- 5th Annual Workshop on Simplifying Complex Networks for Practitioners

More information may be found at

Simplex aims at triggering different computer science communities (e.g. 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 science 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 that 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 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.

All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on their originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the technical program committee.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published by the ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (ICPS), and will be a part of the companion volume of the WWW 2013 proceedings. Paper submissions should not exceed 6 pages in the ACM SIGS Proceedings Template.
