[DMANET] CfP: Special issue on "Algorithms for community detection in complex networks" of open-access journal "Algorithms"

=== Call for Papers ===
(apologies for cross-posting)

Special Issue "Algorithms for community detection in complex networks"
of open-access journal "Algorithms" (ISSN 1999-4893)

This Special Issue shall reflect recent algorithmic advancements in the
field, in particular for scenarios beyond disjoint communities in static
undirected one-layer networks. We invite original high-quality research
on all algorithmic aspects (both theoretical and applied) of community
detection in complex networks, including (but not limited to):

- overlapping community detection
- dynamic community detection
- local community detection
- multi-objective community detection
- community detection in directed and/or multilayer networks
- exact, approximate, and heuristic methods
- complexity of community detection tasks
- methods combining graph topology and semantic data (attributes)
- community detection methodology, e.g. novel objective functions
- experimental methodology for community detection
- parallel and distributed algorithms for community detection

Submission deadline: May 31, 2017

Additional information such as submission guidelines can be obtained
from the Special Issue website at

or from the Guest Editor.
