LUISS Seminar - Some Assembly Required: Organizing in the 21st Century -
Sept. 21


 

Date: September 21, 2012 at  4 pm

Venue: LUISS Business School - Sala Colonne Viale Pola, 12 Roma

 
 
Recent technological advances provide comprehensive digital traces of social
actions, interactions, and transactions. These data provide an unprecedented
exploratorium to model the socio-technical motivations for creating,
maintaining, dissolving, and reconstituting into teams - for research,
business, or social causes. Using examples from research in virtual
organizations and massively multiplayer online games, Contractor will argue
that Network Science serves as the foundation for the development of social
network theories and methods to help advance our ability to understand the
emergence of effective teams. More importantly, he will argue that these
insights will also enable effective teams by building a new generation of
recommender systems that leverage our research insights on the
socio-technical motivations for creating ties.

Guest speaker: 

Noshir Contractor is the Jane S. & William J. White Professor of Behavioral
Sciences in the McCormick School of Engineering & Applied Science, the
School of Communication and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern
University, USA. He is the Director of the Science of Networks in
Communities (SONIC) Research Group at Northwestern University.
