Call for Papers: Community Structure in Complex Networks

A special issue of International Journal of Web Based Communities

Network science is a powerful paradigm to better understand the complex systems encountered in many different disciplines such as physics, sociology, biology and computer science. One of the most relevant features of networked systems is community structure. Despite the tremendous efforts of a large interdisciplinary community of scientists working on this subject over the past few years to characterise, model and analyse communities in complex network, it is still a very hard problem that needs further investigation.

Therefore, the primary goal of this special issue is to showcase the cutting edge research advances in community structures in complex networks, in order to provide a landscape of research progress and application potential in related areas. Papers, of a broad nature, on various aspects of community structure with strong algorithmic innovations, and also application-oriented works, are solicited.

Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
  • Community models in networks
  • Community structure evolution
  • Community structure properties
  • Community structure discovery
  • Community and epidemics
  • Community in economic networks
  • Community and rumour spreading
  • Community and visual representation
  • Community in financial networks
  • Community in technology networks
  • Community in biological systems
  • Community in social networks
Important Dates
Submission deadline: 18 April, 2012
Acceptance notification: 30 May, 2012
Final manuscript due: 30 June, 2012
