The 8th International Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications

Printer-friendly version
10-12-19 to 12-12-19
Event format: 
The International Conference on Complex Networks and their Applications aims at bringing together researchers from different scientific communities working on areas related to complex networks. Two types of contributions are welcome: theoretical developments arising from practical problems, and case studies where methodologies are applied. Both contributions are aimed at stimulating the interaction between theoreticians and practitioners.


Tutorials: (TBU) December 09, 2019

Submission Guidelines

Two types of contributions are accepted:


  • Full papers about original research not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Each submission must follow the Springer publication format available on the website of Studies in Computational Intelligence Series in the Authors and Editors instructions entry.
