Complex networks and more generally complex systems are pervasive in today's science and technology. They include examples like the Internet, the WWW, peer-to-peer, sensor and ad-hoc networks, as well as biological networks such as gene and protein interactions and others. The study of such networks spans accross mathematics, computer science, engineering, biology and the social sciences.
In this three day workshop we want to bring together researchers from mathematics, theoretical computer science, networking, systems and biology. With the common theme of complex networks and systems, we want to share the state of the art in these fields, the work done so far, the vision and major challenges of the future.
The workshop will take place on Georgia Tech Campus, in midtown Atlanta, January 22-24 2007. It will be at TSRB (Technology Science Research Building), right on Tech Square. This is an area full of life, restaurants, cafes, etc, and within walking distance from many hotels. January is also a beatiful time of the year to visit Atlanta, as you will most probably experience a pleasant early spring.
The workshop is supported by Dimacs, Georgia Tech, and the National Science Foundation, under a special year on Discrete Random Systems headed by Dana Randall and Greg Sorkin. There will be no registration fee, and there are limited funds to support travel (provided you contact us early enough).
A special issue of the Journal on Internet Mathematics, whose chief editor is Fan Chung Graham, will be devoted to this workshop.
