    Networks have been an object of study since quite a long time. However, the study of large-scale networks has been possible only with the advent of modern computational means, which have allowed to reach another dimension in the study of complex networked systems. Today, nobody will doubt that networks are all around us and that they are indeed at the base of many transformative technologies that have made the world even more connected and globalized. 

    At the same time, the availability of data and the diversity of scientific fields in which networks have played a role in the last several years, have spurred new mathematical and computational approaches to study networks. Recent examples are the so-called Multilayer Networks, which are suited to represent systems that are interconnected and better captured by networks of networks, e.g., online social systems, transportation networks, etc. Another area that has recently received a lot of attention is that of Geometry of networks and the application of topological data analysis techniques to the study of higher-order relations in networked systems. Finally, more traditional topics such as the statistical physics of networks still have many challenges ahead.

    The Workshop “Theoretical perspectives in network science”, which is sponsored by APCTP (Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics) and Seoul National University and will be held from December 7th to December 9th, 2018, will feature several of the main contributors to network science during the last several years. The Speakers will present talks in the topics above, which will be aimed at summarizing the state of the art in a given area, followed by a generous time for discussion and identification of current and future challenges in Network Science. We believe that this Workshop is an opportunity to have some of the most outstanding and visionary network scientists on the same table discussing the present and the future of network science, which can help to shape the research agenda in the field.
