Computational Models of Social Interaction

One-day workshop at the University of Birmingham

On Thursday, October 9th 2014 the Institute of Advanced Studies at the University of Birmingham will host a one-day workshop on Computational Models of Social Interaction at the University of Birmingham, Michael Tippett Room (Third Floor), Staff House.
The focus of the workshop is to exchange ideas between different research disciplines that are all trying to understand human social behaviour through quantitative and computational modeling methods. During the discussion at the end of the day we will explore possible networking grants that might be of interest for establishing long-term connections between research groups in the various disciplines.

Organizers: Ansgar Koene, Mirco Musolesi, Indrajit Ray, Ulrik Beierholm
