A clear understanding of human interactions and more generally social dynamics has a wide range of applications, ranging from social sciences to information technology, and more fundamentally it is crucial for the design and modeling of social organizations, companies, and governments that are more efficient, responsive, and creative. In this context, however, little is known about the temporal properties of social dynamics and their effects on relevant diffusion processes such as epidemics, and ideas spreading. The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers interested in the use of network science and human behavioral data to improve our understanding of the physics of human social behavior.
The list of topics that we aim to cover at the symposia is the following:
• Modeling of human behavior
• Empirical measurements of human behavior
• Dynamic interplay between social temporal networks and human behavior
• Empirical measurements of temporal networks
• Representation of time-resolved datasets
• Analysis and characterization of temporal networks
• Modeling of temporal networks
• Dynamical processes on temporal networks
The meeting will be one day long and will host around 10 contributed talks. Submissions will be evaluated and selected by the Program Committee members, based on the adherence with the theme of the satellite, originality and scientific soundness.
Abstracts are submitted via the EasyChair website. Authors who do not have an EasyChair account should sign up for an account (for identification purposes, make sure to use the same email address as the one used for the conference registration). Submissions are required to be at most one page long including the following information: title of the talk, author(s), affiliation(s), e-mail address(es), abstract (text only)
Once the selection process is complete, the authors of the accepted abstracts will be notified by e-mail
