CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Registration is now open for SBP12, the 2012 International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling, and Prediction.
SBP12 will be held at the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland, April 2 – April 5, 2012.
The call for participation for the SBP 2012 conference is being circulated widely.
This year's conference should be terrific, as were the previous two, which I attended.
Two years ago, Patrick Qiang and I gave a tutorial on the theme of our Fragile Networks book and last year I became the Tutorial Chair for this conference. This year I am again serving as the Tutorial Chair.
THERE ARE SOME VERY EXCITING ITEMS ON THE PROGRAM!
