CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

ECCS '13
Computational Social Science: From Social Contagion to Collective Behaviour
Barcelona, 19th September 2013
http://microsites.oii.ox.ac.uk/collectivecontagion/

IMPORTANT DATES

Abstract submission deadline: June, 30 2013
Workshop date: September, 19 2013

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION 

Intense scientific debate is going around the definition of the foundational concepts and appropriate methodological approaches to deal with the understanding of social dynamics. These challenges are aiming to understand human behavior in its complexity driven by intentional (and not necessarily rational) decisions and influenced by a multitude of factors. The functioning of communication-based mechanisms requires individuals to interact in order to acquire information to cope with uncertainty and thus deeply rely on the accuracy and on the completeness of information (if any). In fact, people's perceptions, knowledge, beliefs and opinions about the world and its evolution, get (in)formed and modulated through the information they can access. Moreover their response is not linear as individuals can react by accepting, refusing, or elaborating (and changing) the received information.
Technology-mediated social collectives are taking an important role in the design of social structures. Yet our understanding of the complex mechanisms governing networks and collective behaviour is still quite shallow. Fundamental concepts like authority, leader-follower dynamics, conflict or collaboration in online networks are still not well defined and investigated - but they are crucial to illuminate the advantages and pitfalls of this form of collective decision-making (which can cancel out individual mistakes, but also make them spiral out of control).
The aim of this satellite is to address the question of ICT mediated social phenomena emerging in multiple scales ranging from the interactions of individuals to the emergence of self-organized global movements. We would like to gather researchers from different disciplines to form a forum to discuss ideas, research questions, recent results, and future challenges in this emerging area of research and public interest.
