Community structure is one of the most relevant features encountered in numerous real- world applications of networked systems. Despite the tremendous effort of a large interdisciplinary community of scientists working on this subject over the past few years to characterize, model, and analyze communities, more investigations are needed in order to better understand the impact of their structure and dynamics on networked systems. Therefore, the primary goal of this satellite workshop is to demonstrate the cutting-edge research advances on community structures in networks, in order to provide a landscape of research progresses and application potentials in related areas.

Papers ranging from a broad nature, to various aspects of community structure with strong algorithmic innovations, but also application-oriented works are solicited.
Topics relevant to this satellite session include, but are not limited to, the following:

Models of Communities
Embedding Models of Communities

Evolution/Temporal Communities

Dynamic and/of Communities Community Detection
Communities in Uncertain Data Entropy Metrics for Communities Visual Representation of Communities Parallel Algorithms for Communities Hierarchy and Ego-Networks Communities and Sampling Communities and Controllability Communities and Synchronization

Communities and Machine Learning Communities and Resilience Communities and Link Prediction Communities in Social Networks Communities in Multiplex Communities in Economics & Finance Communities in Epidemics Communities in Rumor Spreading Communities in Mobile Networks Communities in Biological Networks Communities in Brain

Communities in Technological Networks
