Workshop: Simplex 2010

I'm on the Program Committee for Simplex 2010, a workshop for the interface between complex networks and computer science. Below is the CFP. Submission deadline is January 22, 2010. The workshop itself is June 21, 2010 in Genoa Italy.

Simplex aims at triggering different computer science communities (e.g. communication networks, distributed systems) to propose research areas and topics that should be tackled from the network science perspective. We also seek contributions from network science that are relevant to solve practical computer science problems. Two types of contributions are foreseen from prospective authors. The first type would consist of use-cases of theoretical tools and methods to solve practical problems. Such contributions should be as usable as possible by practitioners in the related field. The second type of contributions would come from practitioners that have identified a problem that may be solved by tools from network sciences. The point of such contributions is to make the network sciences community aware of the importance of a high-impact problem, and to suggest means by which the problem may be solved by the network sciences community. Both contributions should stimulate interaction between theoreticians and practitioners, and also have high potential impact in either field.

Topics for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

• Design of wired/wireless networks
• Representing and analyzing dynamic networks
• Network robustness to failures and attacks
• Mining of large scale networks
• Forwarding/routing for opportunistic network
• Mobility/connectivity modelling
• Anti-spam and Sybil attacks
