Welcome to IWCSN2017

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and Program Committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the 14th International Workshop on Complex Systems and Networks (IWCSN2017). IWCSN2017 will be held in Doha, Qatar during December 8-10, 2017, as a sequence to IWCSN2004 (Bologna, Italy), IWCSN2005 (Hong Kong), IWCSN2006 (Vancouver, Canada),......, IWCSN2015 (Perth, Australia) and IWCSN2016 (Atlanta, USA). This series of conferences has been held annually since 2004, becoming the premier international workshop in the areas of complex systems and applications.

IWCSN2017 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists, engineers, and educators to present and learn about the state-of-the-art of research and applications on complex networks. The workshop will feature invited speeches given by renowned scholars, and will have regular sessions with broad coverage, as well as tutorial sessions on frontier research topics. Furthermore, the workshop provides opportunities for researchers and students from diverse disciplines to interact, find common interests, share results and ideas, and foster collaborations. The proceedings of IWCSN2017 will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and to be indexed by EI Compendex.Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality original papers or abstracts to IWCSN2017.

IWCSN2017 will be held in Doha, Qatar. It will be the first Arab country to host IWCSN meeting. We strongly believe that this workshop will advance Qatar's culture of research and development.

Small in size, Qatar is enormous in value. It has achieved within decades what other countries have taken centuries to accomplish. It highly values education, especial higher education. It aims to become one of the world's strongest knowledge societies. Its citizens embrace the future with unswerving optimism and enviable potential. Hospitable, generous, and kind, Qataris make guests feel at home.

We sincerely welcome you to submit your papers to this workshop, and looking forward to welcome you in Qatar in the coming December!
