NetSci X’2016 welcomes submissions to the Proceedings Track or Abstract Track. Accepted submissions to the Proceedings Track will be published in the conference proceedings (Springer LNCS) and presented at the conference. Accepted submissions to the Abstract Track will be given opportunity for oral presentation at the conference. Submissions to both Tracks may be accepted to a joint Poster Session. Only previously unpublished, original submissions will be accepted by the Proceedings Track.

Oral and poster presenters will be exempted from the conference fee (one per presentation/poster).


Network science is an emerging discipline concerned with the study of network models in application domains ranging from biology and physics to computer science, from financial markets to cultural integration, and from social media to infectious diseases.

NetSci X extends the popular NetSci conference series ( to provide an additional forum for a growing community of academics and practitioners working on formal, computational, and substantive aspects of complex networks. The conference will be highly interdisciplinary, spanning the boundaries of traditional disciplines.

Both theoretical and applied papers are of interest. Specific topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Computational Network Science
  • Mathematical Network Science
  • Applications of Network Science
  • Behavioral & Social Influence
  • Community Structure in Networks
  • Network Science and Epidemics
  • Network Science and Mobility
  • Network Science in Biological Systems
  • Network Science in Technology
  • Network Science and Ecological Networks
  • Emergence in Complex Networks
  • Geometry in Complex Networks
  • Impact and Success Prediction
  • Information Spreading in Social Media
  • Interacting Social Networks
  • Link Analysis and Ranking
  • Modeling Human Behavior in Complex Networks
  • Models and Simulation of Complex Networks
  • Multilayer Networks
  • Network Controllability and Observability
  • Network Evolution
  • Networks as Frameworks
  • Phase Transitions in Complex Networks
  • Rumor Spreading
  • Search in Complex Networks
  • Shocks and Bursts in Social Networks
  • Structural Network Properties and Analysis
  • Synchronization in Networks

Instructions for Submissions

Submit your full paper or one-page abstract electronically in PDF format. All papers should be submitted electronically through the conference web site. The website includes detailed information about the submission process.

Please use this LINK to submit your paper.

Submissions may be invited for a joint poster session of the Abstract and Proceedings track. These submissions will not be included in the Proceedings, but can be presented at the conference.

Publication in the Proceedings Track

Original papers in the above-mentioned and other related areas will be considered for publications in the Proceedings Track. Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a single-blind peer-review process by at least three referees. Unlike abstracts submitted to the Abstracts Track, accepted papers submitted to the Proceedings Track will be published in the conference proceedings provided at least one author is registered for the conference. The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series. Note that Springer will require signing a copyright agreement, so that previously published research cannot be submitted to the Proceedings Track.

Submitted full papers should follow the Springer LNCS format.

Papers should not exceed 14 pages in this format. Some works may be accepted as short papers and shall be limited to 8 pages maximum.
