Workshop SEDNAM - Socio-Economic Dynamics: Networks and Agent-based Models

Monday, November 10, 2014 - 09:00 to 13:00
deadlines: Submission Sept. 15, Acceptance Notification Sept. 25, Camera Ready paper Oct. 5, Satellite Meeting Nov. 10
Sociophysics and Econophysics provide many examples of systems prone to an 
agent-based analysis: opinion dynamics and financial risk spreading are just 
two of them. Remarkably, agent-based models can be also embedded into 
(multiple) networks, with the aim of representing more realistic scenarios 
(interacting people on different online and offline social networks, countries 
exchanging different kinds of commodities and more).

The aim of this satellite (organized within SocInfo 2014, Barcelona 13-16 
November, is to gather scholars and researchers 
belonging to different fields such as sociology, computer science, economics 
and physics to explore the potentialities of the application of agent-based 
modeling and network theory to real socio-economic systems. The test bench will 
precisely be the analysis of those "big data" that social and economic sciences 
are nowadays facing.
