CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Computational Social Science: Social Contagion, Collective Behaviour,
and Networks

to be held in Lucca, Italy, 24-25 September 2014, a satellite workshop
within the ECCS'14 meeting (www.eccs14.eu)

Website: http://cssworkshop.oii.ox.ac.uk/

Important Dates:

Abstract submission deadline 22 June 2014
Conference date 24-25 September 2013

Event Overview

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
deplorably shallow. Fundamental concepts of on- and off-line networks
such as power, authority, leader-follower dynamics, consensus
emergence, information sharing, conflict, and collaboration are still
not well defined and investigated. These are all crucial to illuminate
the advantages and pitfalls of collective decision-making, which can
cancel out individual mistakes, but also spiral out of control.

In recent endeavours, data from Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Wikipedia,
and weblogs have been shown to strongly correlate to, and even
predict, elections, opinions, attitudes, movie revenues, and
oscillations in the stock market, to cite few examples. Similar data
provided insights into the mechanisms driving the formation of groups
of interests, topical communities, and the evolution of social
networks. They also have been used to study polarization phenomena in
politics, diffusion of information, and the dynamics of collective
attention. However, a deeper understanding of these phenomena is still
very much on demand. In parallel, and even preceding the surge in
interest towards social media, the area of agent-based modeling (ABM)
has grown in scope, focus and capability to produce testable
hypotheses, going beyond the original goal of explaining macroscopic
behaviors from simple interaction rules among stylized agents.

The aim of this satellite is to address the question of ICT-mediated
social phenomena emerging over 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 and methodological backgrounds to form a forum to discuss
ideas, research questions, recent results, and future challenges in
this emerging area of research and public interest.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

- Interdependent social contagion process
- Peer production and mass collaboration

- Temporal and geographical patterns of information diffusion
- User-information interplay
- Group formation, evolution and group behavior analysis.
- Modeling, tracking and forecasting dynamic groups in social media.
- Community detection and dynamic community structure analysis.
- Social simulation, cultural, opinion, and normative dynamics.

Submission Instructions

Submissions will be made by sending one A4 page abstract in pdf via Easychair.
The deadline for abstract submission is 22 June 2014.

The contributions to the event will be evaluated by the programme
committee through a peer review process that will account for the
scientific quality as well as for the relevance of the contribution to
the aims of the satellite.

The authors of accepted abstracts will be notified via e-mail by end
of July 2014.
