organized by Dirk Helbing and Thomas Grund
Social life is increasingly characterized by interdependencies among actors, which give rise to self-organization, feedback-loops, unpredictable and unexpected system behavior, and other complex dynamics. Providing novel and fast ways through which the behavior of individuals may have implications for the behavior of others, information and communication technologies (ICT) seem to dramatically emphasize these tendencies. Agent-based modeling promises to be a major tool for a better understanding of such complexities that fundamentally challenge the way social phenomena are approached. The workshop invites contributions of cutting-edge research that draws on such techniques or on empirical data to study interdependencies in social life, with a special focus on techno-social systems.
Topics for potential contributions include (but are not limited to):
