Scope of the Workshop
Models of networks and their characteristics are essential in the study of numerous fields, and are itself a subject of research employing approaches from different disciplines. Despite disparate methods, commonalities arise in often non-obvious ways, making the exchange under a shared Network Science framework desirable. In continuation of the previous West Point Network Science Workshops, IEEE NSW will therefore bring together researchers and professionals from academia, industry, and government interested or involved in Network Science for information and communication technologies (ICT). Social events include a boat ride on the Hudson. The workshop will be organised into three tracks according to the primary domains:

Information Delivery and Sharing
Networks and Infrastructure
Innovations in Social, Cognitive, and Biologically-Inspired Aspects of Complex Networks

Full research papers, work-in-progress reports, R&D projects results, surveying works and industrial experiences describing significant advances are invited from areas including but not limited to the following:

Biologically-Inspired Systems and Networks
Command and Control Systems
Communication Networks
Complex Networks
Dependency and Interdependency Models
Economic and Financial Networks and Systems
Epidemiology in ICT Networks
Hybrid Physical-Information Networks
Information Epidemics
Network Theory
Physical Infrastructure Networks
Social-Computational Systems
Visualisation of Networks
