We are glad to announce
the call for the seventh
edition of the
summer School that we will organize this year, after a 2 years break due to COVID19.
From 2022 the Mediterranean
School of Complex Networks and the International School of Informatics and Dynamics in Complex Networks have joined their forces into a single event.
The new board of directors
include, in alphabetic order: Prof. Alex Arenas (URV, Spain), Prof. Vincenza Carchiolo (UniCT, Italy), Prof. Manlio De Domenico (UniPD, Italy), Prof. Mattia Frasca (UniCT, Italy) and Prof. Giuseppe Mangioni (UniCT, Italy)
From 2023, the editions
of MSCX will alternate between other locations in the Mediterranean area and Salina.
Please, feel free to
redistribute among potential attendants and accept our apologies in advance if you receive this email more than once.
Mediterranean School of Complex Networks
25 Jun - 02 July 2022
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 in. The wide variety of applications to social sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economics,
to cite just some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to provide new insights into many problems.
Given the success of
the past editions (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018-2019) of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for applications to the
Edition in 2022.
If you are curious about the past editions, you can find more information in the new "From the School" section of the
of Complex Networks:
The goal of this school
Provide a theoretical background to students (Master, PhD) and young researchers
in the field, with particular attention to current trends in Network Science;
Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all participants,
i.e., lecturers and attendants.
For this reason, the
program will involve lectures from experts in different fields (social science, game theory, biology, physics, etc) for 70% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be dedicated to student activities (including talks, debates, "social network

The school will take
place in Salina, a small island in the north of Sicily (Italy). Salina, fully covered by green vegetation and surrounded by the sea, represents a suitable small and quiet environment to achieve the purposes of this school.
Registration is mandatory
for participants, visit the webpage.
School fee is 650 euros,
lectures, transfers from Catania to Salina, and accommodation are included. School fee + social events is 750€.
is limited to 30 attendants, due to COVID19 restrictions. Early applications will be appreciated.
Please, note that meals
are NOT included (except for social dinner).
COVID19: In response
to the current pandemic emergency, the organizers will develop an adequate plan for safety, in agreement with current laws. Note that in-person mode might require COVID19 testing before and during the school, as well as the requirement of valid certifications
for traveling and accessing public places (e.g., restaurants).
We plan a hybrid mode
to allow for remote attendance. The school fee in this case is 150€.
is limited to 70 attendants. Early applications will be appreciated.
This year, we will grant
two scholarships, sponsored by the Complex Systems Society, that will cover the School fee only. The MDPI journal “Condensed Matter” will sponsor the prizes.
