Conference Report: Networks: A Framework for cross-disciplinary applications

posted on 03 November 2009

The Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI) of the University of Zaragoza, Spain, is organizing the Conference "Networks: A Framework for cross-disciplinary applications" that will take place from February 3 to February 6, 2010. More information can be found at

Complex Networks have been the subject of intense research during the last decade. After the burst of activity in this field, it has been increasingly recognized that network theory has become an essential ingredient for understanding and modeling the structure and dynamics of complex systems. The application of complex networks concepts and tools has rapidly spread across disciplines as diverse as Epidemiology, Sociology, Neuroscience and Computer Science. The common methodological framework provided by network theory is thus a crossroads in which different scientific perspectives share efforts and gain knowledge to their own applications.

The aim of BIFI2010 is to bring together scientists studying complex systems in Physics, Sociology, Computer Science, Neuroscience and Biology that strongly rely on the use of complex networks for their research. The topics to be covered include, but is not limited to, the following scientific problems:

- Predictive power of Network Theory.
- Complex Networks in Technology, including communication and wireless networks.
- Structure and Dynamics of Biological Networked Systems at all organizational levels (from the genome to ecosystems).
- Social Networks.
- Evolutionary Game and Graphs Dynamics.
- Algorithms in and for Complex Networks.
- Synchronization in Complex Networks, including Brain and neural networks.
- Epidemic Spreading in Heterogeneous Populations.
