Call For Papers

Dear friends and colleagues,

You are cordially invited to submit an abstract to "Quantifying Success", a satellite at NetSci 2018. We would greatly appreciate it if you help spread this call as widely as possible and consider contributing. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!

Quantifying Success
Jun 11, 2018 - Paris, France

A satellite at NetSci 2018:

Submissions are reviewed on a rolling base until all slots are fulfilled.
Early registration of NetSci 2018: Apr 10, 2018
Online registration of NetSci 2018 ends: May 28, 2018

During the past few years the increasing availability of large-scale datasets that capture activities in scientific publications, patents, grant proposals, sports, enterprises, as well as activities on social media has created an unprecedented opportunity to explore patterns underlying success. The take on this important topic can be rather diverse - from exploring citations of influential scientific papers to the emergence of runaway videos on YouTube, from investigating collaboration that bring success for the team to innovations essential for the success of an enterprise, from the strategies followed by successful sports clubs to the creative patterns of famous composers. As such the tools and perspectives vary, involving social scientists, computer scientists, economists, physicists and mathematicians. The results are published in venues with non-overlapping readership.

The Quantifying Success satellite aims at bringing together scientists and researchers from different disciplines and provide a platform for them to present and discuss their recent results, identify open questions and new challenges, and develop common languages for solving problems in the emerging, fascinating field of the “science of success”. The 5th satellite on Quantifying Success will be providing opportunities to discuss different, multi- and inter-disciplinary approaches to quantify success across a variety of scientific domains, with a main focus on data-driven methods.


The satellite accepts contributed talks in the form of a 10-minute presentation with slides. Participants are invited to submit via EasyChair an abstract of maximum 1 page in PDF format, specifying title, author(s), affiliation(s) and e-mail address(es). CContributions are evaluated on a rolling base, until all slots are filled up (but no later than May 15th). Please makes sure to submit your abstract soon, if you plan on attending and contributing to the workshop.

Areas of Interest include but are not limited to the following focused topics:
Citation dynamics of papers and patents
Adoption and success of products and technologies
Dynamics in social media, such as popularity of hashtags and viral videos
Career success and longevity in different professions
Patterns behind normal and successful career in different disciplines
Prediction of future achievement and career trajectory
How institutions (e.g., universities) shape scientific production
Collaborations and team formation in success
Extinction, evolution and emergence of knowledge
Analytics of success of sports clubs and players
Big Data sources for measuring performance and success
Algorithms for performance ranking
Patterns of success in visual arts, music and writing
Performance sensing and analysis
Data mining for the analysis of performance and success

Confirmed Speakers: (as of Mar 2018)
Paolo Ferragina, University of Pisa
Filippo Simini, University of Bristol
* more speakers to come

Kind regards,
Paolo Cintia, Tao Jia, Luca Pappalardo, and Junming Huang
