Special Issue on Community Structure in Networks 2021

CFP ComNet © T. Nguyen, B. K. Szymanski, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Community structure is one of the most relevant features encountered in numerous real-world applications of networked systems. Despite the tremendous effort of a large interdisciplinary community of scientists working on this subject over the past few years to characterize, model, and analyze communities, more investigations are needed in order to better understand the impact of their structure and dynamics on networked systems. Therefore, the primary goal of COMNET@NETWORKS 2021 is to demonstrate the cutting-edge research advances on community structures in networks, in order to provide a landscape of research progresses and application potentials in related areas. 

This special issue includes papers ranging from a broad nature, to various aspects of community structure with strong algorithmic innovations, but also application-oriented works.
