Large and complex networks play a central role in a variety of todays and future technologies. Communication, information broadcast, and mobile information systems, as well as political and social acting is modeled in terms of such networks. In order to analyze them, the algorithmic aspects of methods to explore them and to derive necessary new information from them have to be understood thoroughly. Scientists from Computer Science, Mathematics, Electrical Engineering and Humanities use these networks, but apply different methods to solve their specific problems.

The Dagstuhl seminar on "Algorithmic Aspects of Large and Complex Networks," scheduled for September 16-21, 2001, is intended to bring together many of the leading scientists from the different areas to start an exchange of expertise in the field of algorithmic aspects of large and complex networks.
