Call for contributions

Complex Networks have been the subject of intense research during the last decade. After the burst of activity in this field, it has been increasingly recognized that network theory has become an essential ingredient for understanding and modeling the structure and dynamics of complex systems. The application of complex networks concepts and tools has rapidly spread across disciplines as diverse as Epidemiology, Sociology, Neuroscience and Computer Science. The common methodological framework provided by network theory  is thus a crossroads in which different scientific perspectives share efforts and gain knowledge to their own applications.

 

The Conference will take place at the Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems of the University of Zaragoza, Zaragoza, Spain from February 3 to February 6, 2010. The aim of BIFI2010 is to bring together scientists studying complex systems in Physics, Sociology, Computer Science, Neuroscience and Biology that strongly rely on the use of complex networks for their research. The topics to be covered include, but is not limited to, the following scientific problems:

 

- Predictive power of Network Theory.
- Complex Networks in Technology, including communication and  wireless networks.
- Structure and Dynamics of Biological Networked Systems at all organizational levels (from the genome to ecosystems).
- Social Networks.
- Evolutionary Game and Graphs Dynamics.
- Algorithms in and for Complex Networks.
- Synchronization in Complex Networks, including Brain and neural networks.
- Epidemic Spreading in Heterogeneous Populations.

 

The Organizing Committee promotes a call for contributions. There will be 9 invited lectures and around 15 short (25 minutes) oral contributions to be selected among those presented as a poster when they are best suited for a talk. Otherwise, they should be included in the poster session.  You can use the online registration form to submit your proposal or send it by email to bifi.networks@gmail.com no later than January 16, 2010.

 

Important : Some grants to help covering subsistance expenses while in the Conference might be available for PhD students or young postdocs. If you are interested in applying please contact the conference's organizers with a brief summary of your research work and a justification of why you need the requested grant.
