Abstract: The study of complex networks has become a common focus of many branches of science. Great effort has been devoted to understand the evolution of networks, the relations between topologies and functions, and the network characteristics. It is well-known that many dynamical processes such as cascading, propagation, and synchronization are highly affected by a small fraction of influential nodes. Researches on finding these influential nodes not only help to reveal microscopic structural features, but also provide assistant tools on analyzing network dynamics. Meanwhile, it can find real applications with great social and economic values, such as controlling rumor and disease spreading, and creating new marketing tools. I therefore propose to organize a mini-symposium called ˇ°Ranking nodes in complex networksˇ±. In this session, we will review the recent progresses of theoretical works in this field, as well as report some applications in various real systems. Moreover, we will discuss the existing problems and outline open issues as main challenges in the near future.
