This special issue focuses on the highly multidisciplinary researches into the methods, theories and applications of complex network systems. The past decade has witnessed significant progress in the field of complex networks, including the deeper theoretical understanding, as well as the successful applications, of various large-scale complex networking systems. The special issue aims at promoting the latest research on complex networks, to serve as a representative collection and frontier exchange of this fast developing field.
