This work has been partially supported by European Commission FET-Proactive project PLEXMATH (Grant No. 317614), the European project devoted to the investigation of multi-level complex systems and has been developed at the Alephsys Lab.

I am in debt with Alex Arenas for proposing this project, with Mason A. Porter and A. Sole-Ribalta for invaluable suggestions and feedbacks.

I would like to thank Inderjit S. Jutla, Lucas G. S. Jeub, and Peter J. Mucha for making their code about multislice community detection available.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the precious help of Serafina Agnello in designing and testing this Graphical User Interface to muxViz.
