1st Workshop “Networks and Dynamics of Social Systems”

The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform for scientific exchange across various disciplines that include – but are not limited to – computational social science, applied mathematics, network science, computer science, and sociophysics. It is meant to bring together scientists that work on perspectives for research in the area of “Networks and Dynamics of Social Systems”. The first and beginning of the second day are devoted to short talks (20min + 10min) highlighting promising directions for future research. These will be followed by plenary and small-group discussions targeted to pinpoint details of specific research questions. This workshop is funded through the Einstein Center for Mathematics Berlin.
