Call for contributions
You are cordially invited to submit a paper or extended abstract to CompleNet 2024, the 15th Annual Conference on Complex Networks, to take place in Exeter on April 23-26, 2023.
CompleNet is an international conference on complex networks that unites researchers and practitioners from various disciplines, including sociology, biology, physics, and computer science, who share a common desire to gain a deeper comprehension of interdependencies within and across systems. CompleNet Live provides a platform to exchange ideas and present discoveries related to diverse network types, encompassing biological, technological, informational, and social networks. CompleNet Live's primary objective is to delve into and commemorate the interdisciplinary essence of complex networks.
We encourage you to submit an original paper or extended abstract to the 15th CompleNet conference. All accepted contributions will be invited to be presented at the conference. Presentations will take place in a plenary session, offering heightened exposure and integration across topics and expertise.

Types of Contribution
CompleNet Live accepts submissions of original contributions in the form of research papers (not previously published) and extended abstracts (about published or unpublished research). Each submission (papers or abstracts) will undergo a single-blind review process by at least two referees on the Program Committee. Papers, if accepted, are included in the Proceedings of the conference edited by Springer Nature. Abstracts are not included in the proceedings or published anywhere.
All accepted contributions will be invited to be presented at the conference. CompleNet is a single track, plenary session, event. Accepted works will be accepted as oral presentation, lightning presentation, or poster. The poster session is one of the best attended events because it happens in parallel with a conference reception. Oral presentations are typically 15-20 minutes long (with questions) and lightning sessions are generally 5 minutes long and do not include questions.
Submitted works (papers and abstracts) can be considered for the best student submission prize if the authors indicate that in the submission. Note that to be considered you have to indicate that in your submission but also fulfil all the following requirements:
Submitted papers should follow the Springer format (here) and not exceed 12 pages. Although you can submit in any format, the final document will have to follow the format available the style folder in this link (LaTeX, Word) and the page limit will be imposed. The page limit includes all references, figures, tables, captions, and other display items. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings in Springer’s Proceedings in Complexity series. Authors can use either the LaTeX (preferred) or Word template to generate a PDF for the submission. After acceptance, however, authors of will be asked for LaTeX source (not Word) for inclusion in the proceedings.
Extended abstracts should be a minimum of one page and a maximum of two pages in length (standard US Letter or DIN-A4, 1-inch margins, 10-point font, single-spaced), and should be submitted in PDF format. Each abstract must include exactly one figure with a caption. Please note that this figure, as well as any references, are included within the two-page limit.
Submissions that do not satisfy the above requirements will not be considered.
Best contributions prizes
CompleNet often offers prizes for the best poster, best paper, best student presentation, the best presentation, and many others. Prizes are generally in the form of a trophy. We believe that authors who go above and beyond should receive a token of recognition for their efforts. In previous years, we have provided prizes even to reviewers and attendees who contributed to the event.
