Event Details

SBP-BRiMS 2022
2022 International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral-Cultural Modeling, & Prediction and Behavior Representation in Modeling and Simulation 

September 20-23, 2022
Will be held in hybrid mode 
(Virtually and in-person in Pittsburgh, USA)


The goal of this conference is to build this new community of social cyber scholars by bringing together and fostering interaction between members of the scientific, corporate, government and military communities interested in understanding, forecasting, and impacting human socio-cultural behavior. It is the charge to this community to build this new science, its theories, methods, and its scientific culture in a way that does not give priority to either social science or computer science, and to embrace change as the cornerstone of the community. Despite decades of work in this area, this scientific field is still in its infancy. To meet this charge and move this science to the next level, this community must meet the following three challenges:  1) deep understanding of socio-cognitive reasoning, 2) human-technology integration, 3) and re-usable computational methods. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
    • Social Cybersecurity
    • Social Network Modeling
    • Human Behavior Modeling
    • Agent-Based Models
    • Models of Human-Autonomy Interaction
    • Health and Epidemiological Models
    • Validation Methods and Human Experimentation

All papers are qualified for the Best Paper Award. Papers with student first authors will be considered for the Best Student Paper Award.

The papers must be in English and MUST be formatted according to the Springer-Verlag LNCS/LNAI guidelines. View sample LaTeX2e and WORD files. All regular paper submissions should be submitted as a paper with a maximum of 10 pages. Total page count includes all figures, tables, and references.

The conference expects to announce a computational challenge as in previous years. Additional details will be posted in December. Follow us on FacebookTwitter and LinkedIn to receive updates.

Several half-day sessions will be offered on the day before the full conference. More details regarding the preconference tutorial sessions will be posted as soon as this information becomes available..

The purpose of the cross-fertilization roundtables is to help participants become better acquainted with people outside of their discipline and with whom they might consider partnering on future SBP-BRiMS related research collaborations. The Funding Panel provides an opportunity for conference participants to interact with program managers from various federal funding agencies, such as the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Army Research Office (ARO), National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

It is anticipated that a limited number of attendance scholarships will be available on a competitive basis to students who are presenting papers. Additional information will be provided soon.
