MSBC 2019 : Modeling and Simulation of Social-Behavioral Phenomena in Creative Societies
Call For Papers
Modeling and Simulation of Social-Behavioral Phenomena in Creative Societies (MSBC-2019)
International EURO Mini Conference
September 18-20, 2019
In the multidisciplinary MSBC-2019 conference, we invite to participate researchers and practitioners from computational science, social science, operations research, artificial intelligence, humanities, and other research areas. The conference MSBC-2019 aims to create an open panel for active dialogue among researchers and practitioners in four sections - theories and concepts, methods, modeling and simulation, and real-life applications. Participants are also welcome to submit to some more specialized invited sessions like 'Globalization and Sustainability: the Theoretical and Methodological Approach', 'AI and Agent-based Simulation of Social Phenomena', 'Social Capital and Social Networks: Conceptual Framework and Research Methodologies', 'Application of Econophysics in Economics and Social Sciences', 'Social Impact of Medicine and Public Health', 'Affective Computing and Affective Technologies', and so on.
Important dates (extended):
Invited session proposals (up to 300 words): 18-Apr-19
Abstract submission (up to 300 words): 25-May-19
Paper submission to Proceedings: 05-Jun-19
Paper acceptance notification: 15-Jul-19
Early registration fee payment: 05-Sep-19

The conference program consists of tutorials, invited and contributed papers. We welcome contributions on theories, methodologies, and emerging applications, including but not limited to the following themes:
Social policy modeling and decision support systems
Social cohesion modeling and metrics
Concepts and models of the social capital
Cultural behavioral modeling
Theories, concepts and models of creative societies and economies
Globalization, society polarization, and cultural identity issues
Behavioral operations research
OR and ethics: understanding dynamics of cultural processes
Culture and sustainability: the theoretical and methodological approach
Agent-based social simulation systems
Computational social science
Social complexity modeling
Agent-based computational economics
Artificial society modeling
Other topics of modeling and simulation in social sciences
Submitted short papers will be published before the conference in Springer Conference Proceedings Series "Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS)". Contributors are encouraged to submit full papers for publication in the WoS and SCOPUS journals: Central European Journal of Operational Research, Informatica, Creativity Studies, EURO Journal on Decision Processes.
