SBP-BRiMS 2024 17th International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling, & Prediction and Behavior Representation in Modeling and Simulation

SBP-BRiMS 2024

17th International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling, & Prediction and Behavior Representation in Modeling and Simulation

September 18-20, 2024

Will be held in hybrid mode

(In-person in Pittsburgh, PA, USA)


The goal of this conference is to build a community of social cyber scholars by fostering interaction among members of the scientific, corporate, government and military communities interested in understanding, forecasting, and impacting human socio-cultural behavior in our quickly evolving social world of today. The conference values diverse disciplinary participation from the social, behavioral, physical, and computational sciences and welcomes a broad range of methodological approaches (agent-based models, online experiments, network science and social network analysis, and machine learning). All computational social science papers and panels are welcome. Some illustrative topics include: • Social Cyber Security • Trust in AI; Human-AI Interaction • Blockchain and Privacy-Preserving Technologies • Social Media Analytics and Network Science • Online Collective Action, Social Movements, and Mob Dynamics • Military in the Age of AI • Cognition and Organization Theory • Disinformation, Deepfakes, and Online Harms • Applications (Healthcare, Economics, Government, Military, etc.)


All accepted and presented full papers will compete for Best Conference Paper Award and Best Student Paper Award. Only Student first author papers will be considered for the Best Student Paper Award. Papers will be evaluated on originality, technical merit, and significance to social-cyber applications. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of the conference and will have an opportunity to publish an extended version of their paper in the Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory (CMOT) special issue.

HOW TO SUBMIT : For information on paper submission, check here.

You will be able to update your submission until the final paper deadline.

PAPER FORMATTING GUIDELINE: The papers must be in English and MUST be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag LNCS/LNAI guidelines. View sample LaTeX2e and WORD files. All regular paper submissions should be submitted as a paper with a maximum of 10 pages. Total page count includes all figures, tables, and references.

CHALLENGE PROBLEM: The conference will have a computational challenge as in previous years. Additional details are available at the conference Challenge website: Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to receive updates. PRE-CONFERENCE TUTORIAL SESSIONS: Several half-day sessions will be offered on the day before the full conference. More details regarding the preconference tutorial sessions will be posted as soon as this information becomes available.. FUNDING PANEL & CROSS-FERTILIZATION ROUNDTABLES: The purpose of the cross-fertilization roundtables is to help participants become better acquainted with people outside of their discipline and with whom they might consider partnering on future SBP-BRiMS related research collaborations. The Funding Panel provides an opportunity for conference participants to interact with program managers from various federal funding agencies, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Army Research Office (ARO), National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). ATTENDANCE SCHOLARSHIPS: It is anticipated that a limited number of attendance scholarships will be available on a competitive basis to students who are presenting papers. Additional information will be provided soon.
