INTRODUCTION
------------
The 1st International Workshop on Computational Aspects of Network Science (CAoNS) will be held in conjunction
with the 25th European Conference on Advances in Databases and Information Systems (ADBIS'2021). CAoNS provides 
opportunities for researchers and practitioners to share their original research results, and practical development 
products on Network Science.

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.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Machine Learning for Network Data Management
   Data Mining for Network Data
