Welcome to the

Computational Aspects of Network Science (CAoNS) workshop

Turin, Italy - September 05, 2022

to be held in conjunction with ADBIS 2022

The 2nd International Workshop on Computational Aspects of Network Science (CAoNS) will be held in conjunction with the 26th European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems (ADBIS'2022). CAoNS provides opportunities for researchers and practitioners to share their original research results, and practical development products on Network Science.
The CAoNS 2022 workshop will be a hybrid event. We warmly invite all authors and participants to convene physically in Turin, but the entire event will be accessible online via two-way video-conferencing.

CAoNS aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners working on areas related to any kind of network, such as networks of devices, World Wide Web, social, bibliographic, biological networks, complex systems, and so on, with main focus on the management of networked data (retrieval, evolution) and on the use of analytics for predictive purposes and/or on the analysis of the networks themselves. Due to numerous applications, there is a growing interest in such systems from the point of view of modeling, capturing, storing and management. This is where IT comes into play, e.g. graph databases, machine learning, distributed and parallel processing.


We invite the submission of articles that address various computational aspects of network science. The workshop welcomes submissions of theoretical, technical, experimental, methodological papers, application papers, addressing - though not limited to - the following topics:
  • Types of Networks
    • Multilayer & Single layer complex networks
    • Multiplex complex networks
    • Temporal complex networks
    • Higher-order complex networks
  • Machine Learning in/for Networks
    • Node/edge classification
    • Network embedding
    • Topology characterization (inference/ prediction)
  • Analytics in Networks
    • Diffusion processes
    • Ranking/Search algorithms
    • Recommendations
    • Network Evolution and Growth
  • Network/Graph Databases
    • NoSQL, RDF, Query languages
    • Compressing, (Learned) Indexing
    • Parallel/Distributed processing
    • Novel Test/Benchmark collections
  • Security for Networked Data
    • Anomaly detection
    • Data protection
    • Crime data mining and network analysis
    • Trust and Reputation
  • Applications of Network Science in
    • Scientometrics/Informetrics
    • Neural Networks
    • Teams, e.g., sports
    • Medicine/Biology
    • Social/financial/legal networks


  • Deadline for submissions: May 16, 2022
  • Notification date: June 07, 2022
  • Camera ready due: June 15, 2022
  • Workshop date: September 05, 2022

Submission instructions

Submitted papers should present substantially original results not currently under review or published elsewhere. Papers should be written in English and must comply with the Springer formatting guidelines. Instructions for authors are available at Papers should be formatted either in Latex or Word and submitted in PDF format using the EasyChair online submission system

via this EasyChair LINK.

Be careful to select the CAoNS track for your submission.

In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made. The number of pages of a workshop paper must be 6-8 pages for short papers, and 12 pages for full papers.
We kindly ask authors to adopt inclusive language in their papers and presentations ( and, and all participants to adopt a proper code on conduct (

Accepted and Best Papers publication

Workshop papers papers will be published in the Springer CCIS series.
Outstanding workshop papers will be invited to submit an extended and revised version of their papers to a special issue in a Q1 journal: Information Systems Frontiers (Springer)
