2012 International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling, & Prediction (SBP12)
The SBP conference is the result of merging two successful international conferences on closely related subjects:
- International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral Modeling, and Prediction (SBP)
- International Conference on Computational Cultural Dynamics (ICCCD)
The combined conference retains the acronym SBP, with “Behavioral” replaced by “Behavioral-Cultural”.
Social computing harnesses the power of computational methods to study social behavior within a social context. Cultural behavioral modeling refers to representing behavior and culture in the abstract, and is a convenient and powerful way to conduct virtual experiments and scenario planning. Both social computing and cultural behavioral modeling are techniques designed to achieve a better understanding of complex behaviors, patterns, and associated outcomes of interest. Moreover, these approaches are inherently interdisciplinary; subsystems and system components exist at multiple levels of analysis (i.e., “cells to societies”) and cross disparate disciplines.
