Call for contributions
You are cordially invited to submit a paper or extended abstract to CompleNet 2020, the 11th Annual Conference on Complex Networks, to take place in Exeter, England, on March 31-April 4, 2020.
CompleNet is an international conference on complex networks that brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines—from sociology, biology, physics, and computer science—who share a passion to better understand the interdependencies within and across systems. CompleNet is a venue to discuss ideas and findings about all types networks, from biological, to technological, to informational and social. It is this interdisciplinary nature of complex networks that CompleNet aims to explore and celebrate.
We encourage you to submit a paper or extended abstract 11th CompleNet conference. Accepted works may be accepted as oral presentations or poster presentations. All oral presentations will take place in a single plenary session, offering heightened exposure and integration across topics and expertise.
Please log in to Easychair using the link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=complenet20

Types of Contribution
CompleNet accepts new contributions in the form of long and short papers (not previously published) and extended abstracts (about published or unpublished research). Each submission will undergo blind review by at least two referees on the Scientific Committee. Full papers will be peer reviewed and, if accepted, included in the Proceedings of the conference edited by Springer Verlag.
All contributions can be accepted for either an oral presentation or a poster. If you prefer to send your submission directly as a poster, you will be able to do so in the EasyChair submission process.
After the conference, selected works may have the opportunity to submit their papers to many special issues at the Applied Network Science Journal (Springer), Complexity Journal (Hindawi), PLoS One, Complex Networks (Oxford), and others.
Submitted papers should follow the Springer format (here) and not exceed 12 pages if submitted as long papers, or 8 pages if submitted as short papers. Page limits include all references, figures, tables, captions, and other display items. Due to space constraints, some works submitted as long papers may ultimately be accepted as short papers. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings in Springer’s Complexity series. Authors can use either the LateX 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 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 should include exactly one figure, with caption. Please note that this figure, as well as any references, are included within the two-page limit.
Submissions that that do not satisfy the above requirements will not be considered.
Both papers and extended abstracts may be accepted as a poster. At CompleNet works are accepted either as oral presentation or poster presentation and the choice of presentation is recommended by the reviewers during the peer-review process. However, authors may indicate during their submission that they prefer a poster presentation by appending the name "POSTER" to the title of their work (not on the PDF) in the submission form. If this is not done, the reviewers will exercise their discretion during the review process. Note that given the limited number of oral presentation slots we cannot guarantee you will be given a oral presentation. The decision as to wether the contribution will be delivered orally or as a poster is not based on the quality of your work only. Instead it is based on the suitability of the topic to an oral or poster mode of presentation. Hence, a poster presentation should not be seen as a work with less quality. Last, poster presentations will automatically enter the poster presentation prize which is given to the best quality poster of the conference (presentation of the poster and design).
