This is the first workshop of Working Group 3 "Networks" of the COST Action MP0801 "Physics of Competition and Conflict". The workshop is intended to be a highly interactive meeting of active researchers in the fields of networks, network dynamics, and dynamics on networks. The aim is to identify common problems arising in economical, social and biological contexts. The workshop is intended as a discussion forum where researchers from different fields exchange views and offer ideas that aim to identify important or promising directions for future research. The focus is on the relevance of the network science in socio-economic phenomena. The workshop will provide ample room for extended discussions besides a series of high-quality presentations.
