Event Details

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session we are organizing on Experimental Studies of Communication on Social Networks at Networks 2021

Session description: 
In social networks agents make decisions within a structure or topology that represents various interactions. Social interactions are largely influenced by the way agents communicate with each other. Different network structures and types of communication can render different individual and group behaviors among agents situated on networks.


A deeper understanding of the impact of communication on agents’ beliefs, intentions, and actions within a network is important. This session is focused on empirical studies of communication on social networks. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the impact of pre-play communication on behavior in games, the effect of communication in group identity tasks, the effect of communication on decision processes within networks, and the study of content analysis of communication of agents located in different networks. Any type of communication may be considered, including costly or costless, limited or free-form, verbal or non-verbal, and electronic or face-to-face. We welcome submissions using laboratory experiments, field experiments, or meta-analyses of experimental results.

Deadline: January 24, 2021
