Conference on Media Opinion Dynamics - ICT applications to Non-Equilibrium
Social Sciences

10-11 June 2013, ISCTE-IUL Lisbon University Institute

Call for abstracts and posters: deadline 4th of May, 2013

Traditional media operates on one-to-many, broadcast transmission models
whereas social media provides a many-to-many model. This more peer-to-peer
approach means that it can dynamically adapt to the formation of new groups
and voices. Also, it begs to question of how peers themselves are shaped by
the media that they co-create. What incentivises active participation? How
can these dynamics be understood and modelled? With which ICT tools? On the
other hand, what is the actual role of traditional media in opinion
dynamics? Is there some kind of intricate influence between social and
traditional media? Can this phenomena be observed, measured, and
characterized with the actual ICT resources?

The Media Opinion Dynamics Conference brings together researchers working
with both social and traditional media, in the context of the new
Non-Equilibrium Social Science (NESS), to discuss their findings and
propose new ways in which NESS can be used. Speakers will present case
studies and models of traditional and social media dynamics and will
discuss the outputs and applicability of their research in the context of
NESS. The main output from the conference will be identifying future
directions for NESS to address ICT open issues.

Submissions in the form of abstracts (3 to 6 pages) or posters should be
sent to [log in to unmask] with the subject “Submission to Media Opinion
Dynamics Conference”.

Deadline for submissions: 4th of May, 2013

Publication: Abstracts and posters will be published on-line by NESS.
Selected talks will be invited for contributing to a NESS book regarding a
state-of-the-art for ICT applications to Non-Equilibrium Social Sciences.
Talks will be video recorded and presented at the NESS Digital Library.

Fee: 50€ (including coffee-breaks), 100€  with lunch during the 2 days of
the conference.

Conference supported by ISCTE-IUL, CIES-ISCTE, and NESS
