International School

on Informatics and Dynamics

in Complex Networks

University of Catania, 15 -19 October 2018


The school is organized at the University of Catania, Italy, by the Department of Electrical Electronics and Computer Science and the Cometa Consortium.
It consists of a series of lectures given by leading scientists in the field, aiming at providing a comprehensive treatment from background material to advanced results. The school is specially directed to PhD students and young researchers interested to the diverse aspects of the theory and applications of complex networks in science and engineering. The school aims at encouraging cross-disciplinary discussions between participants and speakers and start new joint researches.
The Workshop on Informatics and Dynamics in Complex Networks is a side event, with respect to the school, sponsored by the School and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Chapter, Central and South Italy Section. Its purpose is to allow school participants to share reasearch activities and is open to all people and it is free of charge. During the workshop slots for presentations by the participants are scheduled, and an award for the best presentation is also included.
