Location: San Francisco, CA, USA


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.

This workshop aims to gather researchers studying the phenomenon
of social influence in networks and it is indented to be a cross-domain
knowledge exchange. That is why we are willing to present the state
of the art and current research in this area from different perspectives:
computer science, physics, sociology, as well as mathematics or psychology,
making this event interdisciplinary. We believe that only by taking
the advantage of all the above mentioned fields it is possible to move
forward in understanding how this complex works and how the society
may benefit from understanding it better.


The scope of the Workshop on Social Influence (SI 2016) 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
