Mediterranean School of Complex Networks

Catania, Sicily 25 - 30 June 2023


In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical process they are involved into. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economic, to cite just only some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
Given the success of the Seventh Edition in 2022 of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for applications to the Eighth Edition in 2023.

The official language of the School is ENGLISH

The School will award two prizes: to one attendant, for the best flash talk and to one lecturer, for the best lecture.

COVID19: In response to the current pandemic emergency, the organizers will develop an adequate plan for safety, in agreement with current laws. Please, note that the organizers may require the COVID 19 test before and during school.
