Scope of Special Issue:
Computational methods to represent, model and analyze problems using social information have come a long way in the last decade. Computational methods, such as social network analysis, have provided exciting insights into how social information can be utilized to better understand social processes, and model the evolution of social systems over time. Meanwhile, the emergence of parallel architectures, in the form of multi-core/many-core processors, and distributed platforms, have provided new approaches for large-scale modeling and simulation, and new tools for analysis. This special issue provides a platform to bring together interdisciplinary researchers from areas, including computer science, applied mathematics, social sciences, and computer engineering, to showcase innovative research in computational social systems that leverage the emerging trends in parallel and distributed processing, computational modeling, and high performance computing.
The major topic areas covered by the special issue are:
1. Large-Scale Modeling and Simulation for Social Systems.
2. Social Computing Algorithms for Parallel and Distributed Platforms
