Sixth IEEE International Workshop on Network Science for Communication Networks (NetSciCom) in conjunction with IEEE Infocom 2014
Network science is a newly emerging discipline with applications in a variety of domains, such as
communication networks, power grid networks, transportation networks, social networks,
biological networks, and economics. Designing complex communication networks of the future
needs a deep understanding of the interplay between the physical, communication, and social
networks involved. An 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 this workshop is to a provide a forum where this diverse group
of researchers can meet and exchange ideas that will lead to deeper insights into the design of
future robust, efficient, and complex communication networks.
Topics of Interest:
The topics of this workshop lie at the intersection of network science and communication network
design, including topology design and analysis, traffic modeling, traffic routing, social media
analysis, blogs and friendship networks, bio-inspired networks, Internet-scale measurement and
analysis of online communities, social network analysis with mobile phone data, interdependency
between power grid, communication, and transportation networks.
