In the spirit of past CCEGN workshops (CCEGN-2018, CCEGN-2017, CCEGN-2016), the workshop "Critical and Collective Effects in Graphs and Networks - 2019" (CCEGN-2019) continues to explore the topics at the interface between network science, statistical physics, and random graphs. The CCEGN-2019 will bring together top researchers working in these areas. The workshop aims at facilitating the transfer of ideas, insights and interdisciplinary approaches to tackle new and exciting problems in random graphs and real networks. Topics include:
- Spreading phenomena and other dynamical process on networks, Griffits phases and spectral methods
- Metric structure of random graphs, and spatially embedded random graphs
- Random graphs with quenched disorder, microcanonical and canonical ensembles of random graphs, phase transitions, belief propagation and related questions
- Statistical methods in interdisciplinary applications: social and ecological networks, genomic networks, neuroscience
There are two traditional features of the CCEGN workshops that the past attendees mostly enjoyed: (i) the relaxed schedule of talks to allocate a plenty of time for scientific discussions and exchange of ideas, and (ii) the high quality of the presentations -- all talks are invited and are given by top experts in their fields. The total approximate number of talks is 20, and the duration of each talk is 1 hour including questions. Discussion panels on various topics may be formed by the organizers if there is a substantial interest among the attendees.
List of confirmed speakers (under update):

- Clara Granell (University of Barcelona, Spain)
- Pavel Krapivsky (University of Boston, Boston, USA)
- Vito Latora (School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary University, London, UK)

The overview yet in-depth format of talks provides an excellent opportunity for researchers at early stages of their carriers to learn about recent cutting-edge developments in network science and adjacent areas, so that PhD students, postdocs and young researchers working in these areas are encouraged to attend the workshop. The workshop attendees can present a poster as the workshop will have a poster session. A limited number of travel grants will be available on a competitive basis.
The workshop will take place during 5 - 10 of May, 2019 at Les Houches Physics School located in the Chamonix valley of French Alps.
