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.


Papers reporting original and unpublished research results pertaining to the above topics are solicited.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. Papers have to be formatted according to the IEEE two-column template.

Submissions to SI 2017 should be anonymized: please remove authors' names and any other information that could reveal your identity from your submission. Papers that have not been properly anonymized will be rejected without review.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop and present the paper.

Please submit your paper by using the on-line submission system via:
