How does sociopolitical polarization emerge on social networks? What are the factors contributing to (dis)information diffusion, hate speech, and the spread of radical content? Central to these urgent societal phenomena is a concept of social influence.
The workshop specifically aims at building bridges between different research communities in terms of reaching a common understanding and multidisciplinary view on Social Influence Analysis, ranging from computer science, marketing, mathematics, information systems, to social and communication science.
Highly recognized international experts will give keynote talks fostering interdisciplinary and fruitful discussions. State-of-the art research in the participating disciplines will be summarized and promising joint research as well as funding opportunities will be identified.
