Call for Abstracts - Special Session on
      Applying Complex Network Analysis to Industrial Risk Studies

            - co-located with the Networks 2021 Conference -
                July 6-11, 2021, Washington D.C., USA

With the emergence of the Internet of Things and complex networked systems, safety and security in such complex application contexts is becoming critical. In particular, this relates to such industrial domains providing critical infrastructures, but also in the context of initiatives such as Industry 4.0. Here, network analysis provides for an emerging research field to be applied for safety and security analytics, e.g., for anomaly and threat detection and risk assessment.

This special session aims at providing a forum for the discussion of this emerging research field. The meeting targets both researchers and practitioners interested in applying network analysis methods for investigating safety and security aspects in the industrial domain.

A non-exhaustive list of targeted topics includes:
- Complex/multiplex networks models for industrial settings
- Feature-rich networks in complex industrial domains
- Dynamic network analysis for risk estimation
- Link prediction for risk and security issues
- Multiplex and attributed networks evolution
- Community detection for risk estimation
- Hotspot detection
- Anomaly detection
- Multiplex network mining
- Applications of all of the above
