CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT TO ALL SOCNETTERS:

Second Joint Japan-North America Conference
on Mathematical Sociology

May 31 - June 2, 2002

Coast Plaza Suite Hotel at Stanley Park
Vancouver, BC, Canada


Organized by the Mathematical Sociology Section of the
American Sociological Association, in cooperation
with Japanese mathematical sociologists, and designed to
continue and expand on the successful First Joint
Japan-America Conference held in Hawaii in 2000.

Background:

One object of this conference is to familiarize mathematical
social scientists from the U.S. and other countries with the
work of their Japanese counterparts, much of which is
published only in Japanese and thus relatively inaccessible
to English and other language speakers.  We are particularly
interested in fostering professional acculturation and
scholarly exchange among Japanese and American students and
faculty and professionals in the social sciences.

In Japan, mathematical sociologists are much more
interdisciplinary than in the US and include economists,
mathematical biologists, and mathematicians as well.  These
are disciplines either poorly represented or completely
missing in the Mathematical Sociology Section of the
American Sociological Association.  Thus, Japanese
mathematical sociology includes perspectives in which
American and other sociologists are probably less well
informed, such as bio-sociology and rational choice
from evolutionary game-theoretic perspectives.

Other Information:

Following the conference banquet on May 31 there will be an
invited panel discussing subjects in mathematical social
science of common interest to both Japanese and other
participants.

We are attempting to obtain financial support from NSF to
cover much of the cost for U.S. and Japanese student
participants to attend the conference.

American students will experience many benefits from the
conference. Some will learn what Japanese mathematical
sociologists are doing and, because of the greater
disciplinary heterogeneity among the Japanese, they can
gain exposure to mathematical work by economists and
biologists.  They will be able to interact with Japanese
sociologists, which may lead to future collaborations.
Finally, they will be able to present their own work,
a particularly valuable experience at the start of their
careers.

Patrick Doreian, Editor, has indicated that papers presented
at this conference will be considered for publication in one
or more special issues of the Journal of Mathematical Sociology.
