*Dear All,* **
We are glad to announce the call for the seventh editionof the summer
School that we will organize this year, after a 2 years break due to
From 2022 the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks and the
International School of Informatics and Dynamics in Complex Networks
have joined their forces into a single event.
The new board of directors include, in alphabetic order: Prof. Alex
Arenas (URV, Spain), Prof. Vincenza Carchiolo (UniCT, Italy), Prof.
Manlio De Domenico (UniPD, Italy), Prof. Mattia Frasca (UniCT, Italy)
and Prof. Giuseppe Mangioni (UniCT, Italy)
From 2023, the editions of MSCX will alternate between other locations
in the Mediterranean area and Salina.
Please, feel free to redistribute among potential attendants and accept
our apologies in advance if you receive this email more than once.
Call for participation
VII Mediterranean School of Complex Networks

25 Jun - 02 July 2022
In the last decade, network theory has been revealed to be a perfect
instrument to model the structure of complex systems and the dynamical
process they are involved in. The wide variety of applications to social
sciences, technological networks, biology, transportation and economics,
to cite just some of them, showed that network theory is suitable to
provide new insights into many problems.
Given the success of the past editions (2014-2015-2016-2017-2018-2019)
of the Mediterranean School of Complex Networks, we call for
applications to the 7th Edition in 2022.If you are curious about the
past editions, you can find more information in the new "From the
School" section of the Journal of Complex Networks:
The goal of this school is twofold:
Provide a theoretical background to students (Master, PhD) and young
researchers in the field, with particular attention to current
trends in Network Science;
Promote philosophical and scientific exchange between all
participants, i.e., lecturers and attendants.
For this reason, the program will involve lectures from experts in
different fields (social science, game theory, biology, physics, etc)
for 70% of the duration of the school. The remaining time will be
dedicated to student activities (including talks, debates, "social

How to participate
The school will take place in Salina, a small island in the north of
Sicily (Italy). Salina, fully covered by green vegetation and surrounded
by the sea, represents a suitable small and quiet environment to achieve
the purposes of this school.
Registration is mandatory for participants, visit the webpage.
School fee is 650 euros, lectures, transfers from Catania to Salina, and
accommodation are included. School fee + social events is 750€.
In-person participation is limited to 30 attendants, due to COVID19
restrictions. Early applications will be appreciated.
Please, note that meals are NOT included (except for social dinner).
COVID19: In response to the current pandemic emergency, the organizers
will develop an adequate plan for safety, in agreement with current
laws. Note that in-person mode might require COVID19 testing before and
during the school, as well as the requirement of valid certifications
for traveling and accessing public places (e.g., restaurants).
We plan a hybrid mode to allow for remote attendance. The school fee in
this case is 150€.
Online participation is limited to 70 attendants. Early applications
will be appreciated.
This year, we will grant two scholarships, sponsored by the Complex
Systems Society, that will cover the School fee only. The MDPI journal
“Condensed Matter” will sponsor the prizes.
