COMPLEX NETWORKS IN ACTION

University of Catania, Italy, 26-28 September, 2012

AIM OF THE COURSE
Complex networks constitute a paradigm pervading many natural or man-made
complex systems. Complex networks attract a wide and interdisciplinary
audience coming from various fields: from theoretical scientists, to
physicists, to engineers, to biologists. Recently, the topic paved the way
to new perspectives in different advanced research fields such as brain
dynamics (where complex networks have been demonstrated to provide new
tools for functional activity characterization), climatology (where they
provide a powerful framework to statistically investigate the topology of
local and non-local statistical interrelationships), synchronization (where
synchronization emerges as a complex interplay between network structure
and properties and node dynamics), electronics (where the recent efforts
directed towards large-area applications require to deal with complex
patterns of interconnectivity), sensor networks (where the structural and
evolutionary properties of models of complex networks are explored to
design alternative network control methods and effective and robust
techniques) and other examples. The idea underlying the School is to focus
on such fields where the application of paradigms, concepts and methods
from complex network theory revealed to be of great interest both from a
theoretical point of view and from an application point of view. The School
will thus focus on fields in which complex networks can be seen “in
action”.
