- Arts, Humanities and Complex Networks
We are pleased to present the first in an ongoing series of special sections focusing on the convergence of arts, humanities and complex networks. The mission of this special section and symposium series is to strive for and foster cross-disciplinary research on complex systems within or with the help of the arts and humanities.
The special section highlights arts and humanities as an interesting source of data, where the combined experience of the arts, humanities research and the natural sciences makes a huge difference in overcoming the limitations inherent in artificially segregated communities of practice. In addition we are interested in striking examples where artists and humanities researchers make an impact within the natural sciences. We want to unleash previously untapped potential by developing the right questions, methods and tools, as well as deal with problems of information inaccuracy and incompleteness.
For the current section we have selected papers presented at the first Leonardo satellite symposium on "Arts Humanities Complex Networks" at NetSci2010, The International School and Conference on Network Science, 10 May 2010 at Northeastern University in Boston.
