IEEE International Workshop on Network Science Communication Networks (NetSciCom 2013), Turin, Italy, 19 April 2013

Network Science is a newly emerging discipline with applications in a variety of domains, such as, Communication Networks, Power Grid Networks, Transportation Networks, Social Networks, Biological Networks and Economics. Designing complex communication networks of the future needs a deep understanding of the interplay between the physical-, the communication- and the social networks involved. An understanding of such interdependency can only be achieved by closer interaction between Network Scientists, Communication Network Designers, and Social and Behavioral Scientists. The goal of this workshop was to a provide a forum where this diverse group of researchers can meet and exchange ideas that will lead to deeper insights into the design of robust, efficient and complex communication networks of the future.

GreenTouch members enjoy professional interaction at the recent IEEE International Workshop in Turin, Italy.
