Extended versions of papers of special merit will be considered for publication
in a special issue of Optical Switching and Networking Journal (Elsevier).
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.


Since USRR 2015 is co-located with RNDM 2015, registration to USRR 2015 is done via RNDM 2015 EDAS registration service.

Emerging network sciences (interdisciplinary science of networks of networks) aim at discovering/identifying, formalizing/representing and analyzing common processes and phenomena underlying physical, chemical, biological, communication, social and cognitive networks. The fundamental objective of this emerging interdisciplinary field is to propose predictive models of these processes and phenomena in these networks that are characterized as adaptive, interdependent, unpredictable, nonlinear, and dynamic. From this perspective, a fundamental question arises as how interdependent network systems can be designed to support unpredictable disturbance and unexpected changes when vulnerable to natural disasters, (un)voluntary disruptions, malfunctions, and changes in its usage patterns due to socio-economic or technological changes. The latter changes could also impact operations for system maintenance as operators running an infrastructure might operate differently than system design assumes. For this purpose, a better understanding of the aforementioned properties characterizing interdependent networks requires to first capture the fundamental interplay between sustainability, resilience and robustness.

Workshop Objective:
Technical networks exhibit many inter-dependencies which are complex to measure and model but also lead to multi-objective decision problems where uncertainty becomes the transversal notion to capture. To this end, understanding the fundamental interplay between sustainability, resilience, and robustness becomes essential in order to rejuvenate and/or improve current design and evaluation methods that are currently unable to cope with this fundamental dimension.

Authors are invited to submit papers that describe state-of-the-art research, present work-in-progress, or suggest open problems covering one or more of the topics of interest to the workshop:
We invite submissions (via EDAS) of original contributions of 4-8 pages, formatted according to the IEEE two-column conference template.
