Abstract: Networks have been studied extensively in the social sciences. Many real systems can be properly described by complex networks whose nodes represent individuals or organizations and links denote the interactions among them. One of the original and primary reasons for studying networks is to understand the mechanisms by which diseases and other things (information, computer viruses, rumors) spread over them. The topology structures of complex networks can have dramatic effects on the behavior of epidemic dynamical processes running on top of it, and it has attracted a great deal of interest due to its practical real-world implications is the modeling of epidemic spreading on contact networks. This minisymposia is mainly focused on the research of modeling approaches of infectious disease on complex networks, and how the topology structures of complex networks affect the behaviors of disease spread.
