Call for participation


VIII Mediterranean School of Complex Networks


Short video:


25 Jun - 30 July 2023
Catania, Italy



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 (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018-2019-2022) of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for applications to the 8th Edition in 2023. If you are curious about the past editions, you can find more information in the new "From the School" section of the Journal of Complex Networks:


The goal of this school is twofold: 
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 games").
