[Dbworld] Last call for abstracts - Multilayer Networks <at> Network Science Journal

Important dates:
- September 1: Abstract submission
- December 1: Submission of selected papers

Dear colleagues,
    we invite submissions for a special issue of the Network Science journal, published by Cambridge
University Press, on the topic “Modeling, Analysis and Mining of Multilayer Networks”.

Notable examples of multilayer networks include online social networks, where the same actors create
multiple accounts on different systems (layers) like Facebook and Twitter, traffic networks, where
locations are connected through different kinds of transportation links like streets and railways, and
systems like the power grid and the corresponding control network, where single points of failure can
originate cascading effects due to their mutual interconnections. Several models have been used to
describe these systems, from multiplex/multirelational networks to heterogeneous information
networks and networks of networks.

All these examples require specific measures, algorithms and methodologies, and allow us to reinterpret
well-studied phenomena in a more realistic way. For example, while information propagation has been
well studied on a single-layer network, often online information propagates moving from one social
medium to the other, determining an inter-layer propagation process whose nature is still largely
unknown. Therefore, multilayer networks have become one of the main research themes in Network Science.

Researchers interested in multilayer networks both from a research and an application points of view are
invited to submit a one-page abstract clearly presenting the context, the addressed problem, the
adopted methodology and the expected contributions of their work. Works on real applications are
particularly welcome.  Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper that will
undergo a thorough double-blind revision process.

The call is open to researchers in statistics, computer science, mathematics, physics, sociology,
economics and other related fields. The issue will have a strong interdisciplinary focus.
