Photos from Hawaii -- Part 2

The above photos were taken this past weekend at the Social Theory and Social Computing Workshop in Honolulu, Hawaii. The workshop brought together researchers and a few practitioners from complementary fields, ranging from computer science and operations research / management science to economics, sociology, and political science, who are interested in social processes and the underlying dynamics. The venue was the Hyatt Waikiki hotel. I also had a chance to attend the workshop banquet at a neighboring Korean restaurant, which was terrific.

Most of the presenters' talk slides have been posted, along with additional photos, on the workshop website and can be found here.

This workshop was sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) and both the funding agency and Dr. Terry Lyons, who was the cognizant program officer, along with the University of Hawaii workshop organizer, Dr. Sun-ki Chai, should be commended for the excellence of the speakers and the discussions.
