The International Conference on Computational Aspects of Networks Science (CAoNS) will take place at Thessaloniki, the second largest town in Greece, and will be collocated with the 23rd International Conference on Discovery Science (DS). CAoNS aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on areas related to any kind of network, such as networks of devices, world wide web, social, bibliographic, biological networks, complex systems, and so on. Due to numerous applications, there is a growing interest in such systems from the point of view of modeling, capturing, storing and management. This is where IT comes into play, e.g. graph databases, machine learning, algorithmic graph theory, distributed and parallel processing. CAoNS is an interdisciplinary venue for computer scientists, physicists, mathematicians and social scientists aiming at sharing ideas and experiences on all computational aspects related to Network Science, and discussing on the broad domains of:

Neural Networks

  • Evolutionary Algorithms
  • Fuzzy Logic, Multi-valued Logic
  • Rough Sets
  • Reinforcement Learning

Graph Databases

  • NoSQL, RDF, Query languages
