Third Social Networks and Multiagent Systems Symposium

4-7 April 2011, University of York, UK


The aim of the SNAMAS Symposium is to exchange ideas, tools,
methodologies, on various works in MAS that integrate the social network



Selected papers, under a second review process, will be considered for
a special issue of the Computational and Mathematical Organization
Theory Journal (CMOT) Springer.


The 2011 release of SNAMAS will be focused on "social relations and
their underlying processes in social organizations". Special
attention will be paid to empirical studies. Topics of interest
include (but are not limited to) works exhibiting:

- empirical and/or theoretical research on a specific social
relation (e.g. relation of power, solidarity, legitimity, trust...);
- the role of specific social relations in structuring organizations;
- the role of agents´ attributes in structuring social relations
(values, emotions, cognitive abilities, ...);
- the role of social relation structures on agent behaviour;
- agent mechanisms and algorithms dealing with representations for
social relations;
- social relations regulations;
- comparative and ontological studies for SNA and MAS;
- mathematical representations for describing and analysing structures for
social relations, and their dynamics.
