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.
