The proposed workshop, to be held at Northwestern University on December 6-7, 2015, will bring together a diverse group of experts in complementary areas of network science, dynamical systems, statistical physics, and complex systems. The workshop participants will be comprised of senior scientists as well as students and postdoctoral researchers. There will be substantial emphasis to topics that cut across disciplinary boundaries. This will be the third edition of this workshop series, and it is expected to mirror the success of the previous editions, held at Northwestern University in December 2011 and December 2013. This edition of the workshop will focus primarily on two timely topics: 1) physical principles underlying the control of network systems and 2) patterns of synchronization and collective behavior in networks of coupled dynamical systems. Because of the cross-disciplinary nature of the workshop, experts will become aware of the latest developments in fields related to but different from their own. This is expected to generate new insights and stimulate new interdisciplinary collaborations. The inclusion of early-career researchers will help promote the transfer of expertise to the next generation of engineers, mathematicians, and physicists.
