3rd Symposium on the Structure and Mobility of Crime, a NetSci2018 Satellite.

NetCrime—The structure and mobility of crime​
--------

Crime plagues the world and is present in every city, at every economic level, at every education level; it percolates in the structure of society probably more than any other socioeconomic problem.Notably, we have seen recently a huge leap forward in the understanding of social structures and human mobility—two crucial components of crime. Offenders not only rarely commit crime alone (be it a robbery of a few hundred dollars, or a high-profile wall-street crime of millions of dollars) but also tend to commit crime along with the same associates. Criminal activities are complex processes and likely to depend on an underlying network of actors involved in the activities who, like most people, are part of global social networks. With the advance in Network Science and related areas, we now have better tools to approach and examine social phenomena such as crime.

Since 2015, NetCrime is an event that has been put together to bring researchers from various fields including, Criminology, Sociology, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, law-enforcement to an open forum to discuss the role of Network Science in understanding the structure and dynamics of crime.

- Understanding crime as a complex system;
- criminal networks;
- crime modeling;
- dynamics and structure of transnational crime;
- dynamics of criminal hotspots in cities;
- dynamics of terrorist events;
- crime prediction in cities;
- spatial regularities of crime in cities;
- use of social media for crime analysis;
- dynamics of cyber-crime;
- interplay of criminal events and social-economic factors;
- use of communication data in criminal activity;
- detection of criminal organization in cities
- relationship between human mobility and crime;
- visualization of illegal activities;
- social network analysis in crime data
- network-based tools for analyzing crime
- visualization of criminal data in cities
- and others.

Submissions will be evaluated and selected by the Program Committee, based on the adherence to the workshop theme, originality and scientific quality. Once an abstract has been accepted, at least one author is required to attend the workshop and present the paper. Please note that the participants must register in the NetSci general conference.
