The 2014 International Workshop on Smart Complex Engineered Networks
co-located with 23rd International Conference on Computer Communications
and Networks (ICCCN)
August 7, 2014 Shanghai, China

Workshop Scope and Topics:

Complex engineered networks ­ such as Internet, power grids, online social
networks, sensor networks - are ubiquitous. They take up important roles
in our society to meet societal and economic challenges of prime
importance. The evolution of future complex engineered networking
infrastructures will have to take into consideration the unprecedented
size of the networks and the intricacies of network interdependencies. The
increasing demand for complex engineered networking devices and services
has made the physical and cyber world more entwined, and spurred the need
towards evolution of new networks. For example, the Internet no longer
just connects people but is evolving into an Internet of Things, and the
power grids are transforming into Smart Grids through better monitoring
and supervisory control networks. New complex engineered network services
for disaster recovery management, large-scale monitoring and data
analytics for environmental and health applications are also emerging.
However, there is currently very little understanding in designing and
controlling these complex engineered networks, and understanding their
robustness, cyber-security, efficiency, network resilience etc.
Furthermore, the costs for network operators can be critical to guide the
design principles. The foregoing considerations highlight the urgent need
for designing smart complex engineered networks.

This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers to
identify and discuss technical challenges and recent results related to
design of smart complex engineered networks. Topics of interest include
but are not limited to the following:

 Network science of complex engineered networks
 Cross-system interaction design for complex engineered networks
 Metrics, fundamental limits, and trade-offs involving complex engineered
 Complex network architectures and its evolution
 Dynamics of networks and behavior prediction that evolve over time
 Cyber-Security and enterprise networking
 Network interdependencies, coupling and decoupling, and coordination
 Network resilience, forensics, security, privacy and vulnerability
 Data analytics in complex engineered networks
 Large-scale cooperative networking for smart environments
 Smart network management and resource allocation techniques
 Network economics of complex engineered networks
 Test-bed, experimental results, and hardware prototypes
 Regulation and standardization
 Applications like Internet of Things, Smart Grid, disaster recovery,
health and environmental monitoring and management
