*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

Salina, Italy

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 
network games").

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.

In-person attendance.

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).

Online attendance.

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.
