The purpose of this volume is twofold. First we intend to provide a snapshot of the forefront research activities in the area of complex networks, provide a good sampling of the disciplines involved, and the kinds of problems that form the subject of inquiry. In doing this, we organized the book in thematic chapter, each one addressing a special area or domain of network science. On the other hand, we want to present the many research achievements obtained within the COSIN project, as well as new identified problems and the various research directions still in their initial stages. In this spirit, chapters will be co-authored by leading scientists who have been involved, in a stage or the other, in the COSIN project. This will also allow us to emphasize the value of the interdisciplinary approach by showing specific pieces of research realized in each particular domain. Despite the contributed chapter format, a specific effort has been put in place to homogenize the various chapters in a general structure providing a coherent and unified framework for the study of networked structure. We hope that this presentation of the field will attract the interest of colleagues within and outside the network community, and serve to further improve our understanding of this fascinating subject.
