Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting a contribution to the Computational Social Science satellite workshop, co-located with the Conference in Complex Systems, which takes place in Greece (23-28 September 2018).

What: Computational Social Science — CCS’18 Satellite Workshop

Where: Thessaloniki, Greece

When: September 27, 2018

More info:

Submission deadline: June 26 2018, 11.59pm Los Angeles time

Notification: June 28 2018 (2 days before the Early Registration ends)

Already at the 6th edition of this satellite, which started in Barcelona (ECCS'13), CSS@CCS'18 will be held as a two-days event. As usual, the aim of CSS@CCS'18 is to address the question of ICT-mediated social phenomena unfolding 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. Particular attention will be devoted to the following topics:

- Dynamics of social contagion.

- Online communication and (mis)information diffusion.

- Interdependent social contagion processes.

- Peer production and mass collaboration.

- Cognitive aspects of belief formation and revision.

- Viral propagation in online social networks.

- Crowd-sourcing; herding behaviour vs. wisdom of crowds.

- Online socio-political mobilizations.

- Temporal and geographical patterns of information diffusion.

- E-democracy and online government-citizen interaction.

- Public attention and popularity.

- User-information interplay.

- Group formation, evolution and group behaviour analysis.

- Modelling, tracking and forecasting dynamic groups in social media.

- Community detection and dynamic community structure analysis.

- Social simulation, and cultural, opinion, and normative dynamics.

- Empirical calibration and validation of agent-based social models.

- Coevolution of network and behaviour.

- Online and lab experiments.

- Computational linguistics.

- Hierarchical structure and ranking dynamics in society.
