Conference report: The Unexpected Conference - Sociophysics - COST MP0801

The “Unexpected Conference” in Paris, November 14-16, 2011 brought together more than 35 researchers from Europe, North and South America, and Asia to present current research in the field of sociophysics.
The conference was organized by Serge Galam at CREA – Centre de Recherche en Épistémologie Appliquée (CREA) at École Polytechnique and CNRS.

Future Internet and Society: A Complex Systems Perspective

Andrea participated at an ESF-COST High-Level Research Conference: Future Internet and Society: A Complex Systems Perspective, 2-7 October 2010, Hotel Villa del Mare, Acquafredda di Maratea, Italy. Organized by Romualdo Pastor-Satorras and Claudio Castellan the conference brought together experts from physics, computer sciences and social sciences to discuss future research agendas around the Internet as an object of study in different fields. Andrea gave an evening lecture titled "Web science or web research?

Design vs. Emergence: The structure of knowledge

Complex networks have been widely used to represent various types of systems. Examples range from straightforward ones such the Internet (routers and physical connections between them) to the highly abstract like protein folding networks or of social behavior (such as phone calls networks). It is obvious that representing a complex system as a simple graph is a reduction of information, showing only one aspect of the original system. In most studies only one such aspect is investigated, using a single, specific characteristic to build the network that is further investigated.

Design vs Emergence: The structure of knowledge

Graphs have been widely used to represent various types of complex systems. Examples range from straightforward ones such as the router links or hyperlinks from the Internet (also known as Cybergeography) to the highly abstract ones like protein folding networks or network maps of social behavior (for instance on e-Bay or Facebook). It is obvious that representing a complex system as a simple graph is a reduction of information, showing only one aspect of the original system. In most studies only one such aspect is
investigated, using a single, specific characteristic to build the network.
