Best Papers to be Invited for an Special Issue of SNAM

We are happy to announce that we have worked with Reda Alhajj, editor-in-chief of Social Network Analysis and Mining, and we’ll have a special issue on that journal from the selected papers from CompleNet 2013. Selected works will have to be extended with at least 40% of new material.

This is the first time CompleNet will be working with a journal to have the best papers extended and published. We are very happy to be working with a prestigious journal such as SNAM. Best papers will be selected based on:

  1. Paper quality according to the reviewers

  2. Presentation of the work during the conference

  3. Appropriateness of the paper to the list of topic of interest to SNAM.

Call for Contributions

The 4th international workshop on complex networks (CompleNet 2013) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on areas related to complex networks. In the

past two decades we have been witnessing an exponential increase on the number of publications in this field. From biological systems to computer science, from economic to social systems, complex networks are becoming pervasive in many fields of science. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that this workshop aims at addressing.

Authors are encouraged to submit previously unpublished papers/abstracts on their research in complex networks. Both theoretical and applied papers are of interest. Specific topics of interest are (but not limited to):

  1. Applications of Network Science

  2. Behavioral & Social Influence

  3. Community Structure in Networks

  4. Complex Network in Technology

  5. Complex Networks and Epidemics

  6. Complex Networks and Mobility

  7. Complex Networks in Biological Systems

  8. Emergence in Complex Networks

  9. Geometry in Complex Networks

  10. Information Spreading in Social Media,

  11. Link Analysis and Ranking

  12. Modeling Human Behavior in Complex Networks

  13. Models of Complex Networks

  14. Network Evolution

  15. Networks as Frameworks

  16. Rumor Spreading

  17. Search in Complex Networks

  18. Shocks and Bursts

  19. Social Networks

  20. Structural Network Properties and Analysis

  21. Synchronization in Networks


Original works in the above-mentioned and other related areas will be considered. Each submitted paper/abstract will be fully refereed and undergo a double-blind review process by at least three referees. Note that double blind means that contributions should be submitted without the author names on the actual paper/abstract.

Please note that:

  1. Accepted papers/abstracts of registered authors will be published as a volume published by Springer-Verlag on the Studies in Computational Intelligence Series.

  2. Accepted abstracts may appear in the proceedings at the authors’ discretion. Authors of accepted abstracts will be contacted at due time to indicate whether they want the abstract to be included. By default abstracts will not be included in the proceedings.

  3. Every accepted poster will be included in the CompleNet 2013 program and authors will be invited to display their poster during a separate section of the workshop. However,  the abstract used for the poster submission will not be included in the proceedings.

Instructions for Submission

Submit your work electronically in PDF format. Neither hardcopy nor fax submissions will be accepted. Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper formats such as A4 or letter. Submitted papers/abstracts should follow the Springer format (please visit Springer website for more details. Instructions for authors is available on the right-hand side of the page). Abstracts length should not exceed 2 pages. Accepted full papers should not exceed 12 pages in this format.

Some papers may be accepted as short papers and shall be limited to 8 pages maximum.

Call for Posters

We communicate about the opportunity to submit a poster contribution to CompleNet 2013.  The poster submissions should be in the form of an abstract submission but title of the abstract should clearly indicate it is a poster by using the following title format:

Submission System

All papers/abstracts should be submitted electronically: EasyChair. In order to conform with the double-blind process we ask authors to submit the papers without author information on the actual contribution.

Submit your papers through

If you do not have EasyChair account, then register and, once you get the log-in information by mail, log into the system as an author. Enter all the required data about your submission and finally upload your contributed work in PDF format.

Authors of selected outstanding papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in the reputed Journals.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. At least one author of accepted papers/posters/abstracts is required to register as a presenter.
