For additional details - you can also keep reading!


The Conferences on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling
and Prediction (SBP) and Behavior Representation in Modeling and
Simulation (BRiMS) will jointly hold their meetings in 2016.

SBP-BRiMS is a multidisciplinary conference with a selective single
paper track and poster session. The conference also invites a small
number of high quality tutorials and nationally recognized keynote
speakers. The conference has grown out of two related meetings: SBP and
BRiMS, which were co-located in previous years.

Social computing harnesses the power of computational methods to study
social behavior, such as during team collaboration. Cultural behavioral
modeling refers to representing behavior and culture in the abstract,
and is a convenient and powerful way to conduct virtual experiments and
scenario analysis. Both social computing and cultural behavioral
modeling are techniques designed to achieve a better understanding of
complex behaviors, patterns, and associated outcomes of interest.
Moreover, these approaches are inherently interdisciplinary; subsystems
and system components exist at multiple levels of analysis (i.e., “cells
to societies”) and across multiple disciplines, from engineering and the
computational sciences to the social and health sciences.

The SBP-BRiMS conference invites modeling and simulation papers from
academics, research scientists, technical communities and defense
researchers across traditional disciplines to share ideas, discuss
research results, identify capability gaps, highlight promising
technologies, and showcase the state-of-the-art in applications in the
areas of cultural behavioral modeling, prediction, and social computing.

Please see the SBP-BRiMS 2016 website for more details. Keynotes and
tutorials delivered in the previous SBP and BRiMS meetings are available
through http://sbp-brims.org .

FORMAT AND SUBMISSION
------------------------------------
The conference solicits three categories of papers:
- Regular papers (max. 10 pages)
   All topics and authors (academic, government, industry) welcome
   Published in a Springer volume and online.  Plenary or poster
presentation.

- Late-breaking results (max. 6 pages)
   All topics and authors welcome.
   Published online. Poster presentation.

- Demos and Industry Track (2-page abstract, or max. 6 pages)
   Published online.  Poster and/or demo presentation.

The papers must be in English and MUST be formatted according to the
Springer-Verlag LNCS/LNAI guidelines. Sample LaTeX and MS Word templates
are available at
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.

A selection of authors will be invited to contribute journal versions of
their papers to one of two planned special issues of the Springer
journal “Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory” and another
high-profile journal.

The submission website will be available at:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sbpbrims2016

For any questions and inquiries concerning submissions, please email the
program chairs.


PRE-CONFERENCE TUTORIAL SESSIONS
----------------------------------------------------

Several half-day sessions will be offered on the day before the full
conference. Sessions will be designed to meet the needs of one of two
distinct groups. One group will consist of attendees who have
backgrounds in the computational sciences: computer science,
engineering, and other mathematically oriented disciplines. Other
tutorial sessions will be designed for behavioral and social scientists
and others   (e.g. those with medical backgrounds or training in public
health) who may have limited formal education in the computational
social sciences. Attendees will gain an understanding of terminology,
theories, and general computational techniques, especially with respect
to modeling approaches.

# Tutorial proposal submission
Tutorial proposals should be submitted in plain text or PDF, by February
1, 2016, by email to the tutorial chair, Yu-Ru Lin ([log in to unmask]).
The email should have "SBP-BRIMS 2016 tutorial submission" in the
subject header. The proposal should include the following elements:
- Title of the tutorial
- Description of the tutorial topic and expected audience
  (including the expected backgrounds of the attendees)
- Short bio and contact information of the organizers

More details regarding the pre-conference tutorial sessions, including
instructors, course content, and registration information will be posted
to the conference website (http://sbp-brims.org/) as soon as this
information becomes available.

Note that the plans for the tutorial sessions are in progress and are
subject to change.


POSTER & NETWORKING SESSION
---------------------------------------------
We expect to invite the majority of all authors of paper submissions to
present a poster at a catered poster and network session.


DEMO SESSION
---------------------
We invite technical demonstrations from academia, industry and
government.  Please submit a 2-page abstract.  We will provide a desk
and power.


CHALLENGE PROBLEM
--------------------------------

There will be a big-data challenge problem.  All individuals or teams
who are interested should see the details at:
http://sbp-brims.org/2016/challenge/index.html .  Those participating
should submit a poster and paper under the late breaking result dates.
All participants will give a poster at the SBP-BRiMS 2016 meeting.  The
challenge winner will be funded to present a plenary paper in 2017.


FUNDING PANEL & CROSS-FERTILIZATION ROUNDTABLES
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Previous SBP-BRiMS conferences have included a Cross-fertilization
Roundtable session or a Funding Panel. The purpose of the
cross-fertilization roundtables is to help participants become better
acquainted with people outside of their discipline and with whom they
might consider partnering on future research collaborations. The Funding
Panel provides an opportunity for conference participants to interact
with program managers from various federal funding agencies.
Participants for the previous funding panels have included
representatives from federal agencies, such as the NSF, NIH, DoD, ONR,
AFOSR, USDA, etc.  The details for 2016 will appear on the conference
web site: http://sbp-brims.org .

BEST PAPER AWARDS
-----------------------------
SBP-BRiMS16 will feature a Best Paper Award and a
Best Student Paper Award.  All papers are qualified for the Best Paper
Award. Papers with student first authors will be considered for the
Best Student Paper Award.


HOTEL AND LOGISTICS
------------------------------
Information on accommodation and logistics will be provided at the
conference website as it becomes available at
http://sbp-brims.org/


TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS
-------------------------------
Previous SBP and BRiMS conferences provided competitive travel support
to participants.  It is anticipated that a limited number of travel
scholarships will be available on a  competitive basis. Additional
information will be provided at the  SBP-BRIMS Conference website as it
becomes available at http://sbp-brims.org  .
