This workshop focusses on recent advances in the theory of discontinuous connectivity transitions in networked systems and the prediction of the position (time point, critical link density) and the type (1st or 2nd order) of the connectivity transition both in complex environments and regular topologies such as lattices. We aim at bridging the three communities of 'explosive percolation', 'networks of networks' and 'interdependent (multiplex) networks' because we expect strong synergetic effects from combining recent progress in each of those disciplines. Our view is to establish future collaborations across disciplines. We are looking forward to both theory and applications presentations.
