You are cordially invited to submit a contribution to "Collective Behaviors and
Networks", a one-day satellite event of the 2013 European Conference on Complex
Systems (ECCS'13), to be held in Barcelona, September 19, 2013.
Goal of this workshop is to provide a discussion venue about advances in the
study of networks applied to the dynamics of social collective behaviors.
Particular attention will be devoted, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Group formation, evolution and group behavior analysis.
- Modeling, tracking and forecasting dynamic groups in social media.
- Community detection and dynamic community structure analysis.
- Social simulation, cultural, opinion, and normative dynamics.
- Empirical calibration and validation of agent-based social models.
- Models of social capital, collective action, social movements.
- Coevolution of network and behavior.

In order to encourage the development of predictive, data-driven models of
collective phenomena, a link prediction competition will be held as part of
the meeting. Monetary prizes will be awarded to the best contributions,
which will be evaluated according to rigorous scientific criteria by the
program committee of the event. 1st prize: US$800, 2nd prize: US$200.
