The Leonardo satellite symposium on Arts, Humanities and Complex Networks (AHCN) at the International School and Conference on Network Science (NetSci) was launched in June 2010 with the main goal of expanding and fostering cross-disciplinary research on complex networks within, or with the help of, the arts and humanities. NetSci, where our satellite symposia took place from 2010 to 2015, is the largest and considered the most important meeting of network science worldwide.

We continue to welcome submissions pertinent to the topic of arts, humanities and complex networks in the Leonardo journal. The goal is to keep serving as a catalyst for relevant trends emerging from mainstream branches within the arts and humanities, the overlapping eco-cosmos of digital humanities and cultural analytics and, of course, the broader community of complex network science. This effort aims to complement work that already permeates discipline-specific conferences, journals and monographs. In particular, we invite further complex network-related submissions to Leonardo to continue the enzymatic function of accelerating emerging art-science research, including work that precedes the critical threshold of established disciplines.
