Social Networks in Agent-Based Models

Session chairs:

Jennifer Badham, Department of Sociology, Durham University

Cristina Chueca del Cerro, Department of Sociology, Durham University


This session presents ABMs that involve dynamic processes over networks. This includes diffusion of ideas and behaviour (eg opinion polarisation, adoption of innovations) or of something more tangible (eg disease, trade goods). It also includes the way in which networks shape macro-level outcomes (eg social inequality, conflict, collaboration). We also welcome contributions that concern the dynamics of networks themselves (eg SAOM, network generators).
