SI 2017 - Workshop on Social Influence 2017

The digital era creates new possibilities for observing humans’ behaviour, especially the one expressed on the Internet, but we also leave traces during everyday activity by making phone calls, using GPS devices or using any kind of transportation. People who meet together or communicate over the Internet or other channels constantly exchange information, rumours, spread opinions and attitudes. Sometimes it is just an information that is being passed from one to another, but it may also become the beginning of a huge change, either of an individual or even of the whole society – but in both cases it starts with becoming influenced or influencing others. Social influence is the process of a complex nature which involves our location in social network, the network structure and dynamics, time and psychological and sociological factors. At the level of an individual it is rather a psychological process but at the network scale it is strongly dependent on the network structure and its dynamics. Hence, studying social influence is a challenging interdisciplinary task, which, if succeeded, leads to better understanding of the surrounding world.

The scope of the Workshop on Social Influence (SI 2017) includes, but is not limited to the following areas:

  • social influence
  • diffusion of information and innovations
  • influence maximization
  • graphical voter models
  • evolutionary graph theory
  • epidemic models on graphs
  • data-driven approaches
  • temporal networks
  • seeding strategies
  • optimization of dynamic processes in networks

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited. Full paper submission deadline is May 10th, 2017. These papers will follow an academic review process. Manuscripts must be in English with a maximum length of 8 pages.

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE CS digital library. Workshop proceedings will be indexed in Thomson Reuters Web of Science, Scopus, DBLP and other scholar databases.
