    The IEEE International Workshop on Complex Systems and Networks (IWCSN 2014) will be held on the Minhang campus, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, 800 Dongchuan Road, Shanghai 200240, China from 24-26 October 2014.

    The International Workshop on Complex Systems and Networks (IWCSN) is a strongly interdisciplinary workshop intended to bring together mathematicians, physicists, biologists, social scientists, and engineers working on different aspects of network topologies and dynamics. The focus of IWCSN 2014 will continue to be devoted to the impact of network structure on systems dynamics. This area continues to be a focal research topic in all branches of science and technology.

    The objectives are to provide opportunities for participants to learn about state-of-the-art research in various related yet disparate fields. We plan to have both tutorial talks and in-depth technical talks describing the latest research results and ongoing projects. Furthermore, these workshops provide opportunities for researchers and students from diverse disciplines to interact, find common ground, share results and insights, and foster collaboration.

    Some of the questions that we have and would like to address in this workshop are: What are the universal properties of complex networks? For a particular application, what is the best complex network theory to deploy? How does the topology of the network influence various aspects of the underlying system? What can we learn from biological and social networks that may be useful in engineering networked systems, and vice versa? What network models can be analyzed mathematically to capture the salient features of the underlying ensemble systems? Can we build a taxonomy of complex network models that facilitates the identification of phenomena in ensemble systems?

    The 2014 IWCSN will include invited talks on both theoretical and applied works on complex networked systems. There will also be an opportunity for junior researchers and students to present their works including a session where researchers may pose interesting open questions.

    This workshop is supported by Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University, Centre for Chaos and Complex Networks of City University of Hong Kong, and the Outreach Initiative of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.
