                             STCAN 2010:
   Special Track on State-Topology Coevolution in Adaptive Networks

                          In BIONETICS 2010

            December 1-3, 2010, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

==========
Aim and Scope

Complex network research has so far addressed mostly either "dynamics
on networks" (state transition on a network with a fixed topology) or
"dynamics of networks" (topological transformation of a network with
no dynamic state changes). In many real-world complex biological and
social networks, however, these two dynamics interact with each other
and coevolve over the same time scales. Modeling and predicting
state-topology coevolution is now recognized as one of the most
significant challenges in complex network science.

This Special Track solicits theoretical, computational, experimental
and/or application-oriented research on any aspects of the
state-topology coevolution of complex networks---either biological,
social, or engineered. Its goals are to promote the growth of a
research community on this emerging new field of network research, to
help develop a common conceptual "language" for modeling, analyzing
and discussing the state-topology coevolution of various real-world
complex adaptive networks, and thereby to galvanize interdisciplinary
discussion and collaboration across many different areas of
applications.

The relevant topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Theoretical foundations
* Mathematical/analytical approaches
* Statistical/machine learning approaches
* Computational modeling/simulation tools
* Real-world examples
* Applications to biological network modeling
* Applications to social network modeling
* Applications to engineered network design
* Historical review
