2013 IEEE International Workshop on 
Complex Systems and Networks
SFU Harbour Centre
December 11-13, 2013
The IEEE International Workshop on Complex Systems and Networks (IEEE IWCSN) is a strongly interdisciplinary workshop intended to bring together mathematicians, physicists, biologists, social scientists, and engineers working on different aspects of network dynamics. The focus of IEEE IWCSN 2013 will continue to be devoted to the impact of network structure on systems dynamics. This area continues to be a hot research topic in all branches of science and technology.

The objectives are to provide opportunities for participants to learn about state-of-the-art research in various related yet disparate fields. We plan to have both tutorial talks and in-depth technical talks describing the latest research results and ongoing projects. Furthermore, these workshops provide opportunities for researchers and students from diverse disciplines to interact, find common ground, share results and insights, and foster collaboration.

Some of the questions that we have and would like to address in this workshop are: What are the universality properties of complex networks? For a particular application, what is the best complex network to deploy? How does the topology of the network influence various aspects of the underlying system? What can we learn from biological and social networks that may be useful in engineering networked systems and vice versa? What network models can be analyzed mathematically yet capture the salient features of the underlying ensemble systems? Can we build a taxonomy of complex network models that facilitates the identification of phenomena in ensemble systems?

The 2013 IEEE IWCSN will consist of four presentations sessions covering a variety of topics including networks and control, topologies, synchronization, network dynamics, and applications. The sessions will be highly interactive allowing more in-depth discussions of the key issues related to the topics being presented.
