Simulating the Social Processes of Science
April 7, 2014 - April 11, 2014
Workshop co-organized with COST and the Lorentz Center Leiden University, The Netherlands
Petra Ahrweiler (Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, Germany)
Bruce Edmonds (Manchester, United Kingdom)
Nigel Gilbert (Guildford, United Kingdom)
Gaston Heimeriks (Utrecht, The Netherlands)
Andrea Scharnhorst (The Hague, The Netherlands)
The aim of the workshop is to stimulate the development of simulation models of the inter-scientist processes that are part of the complex we call science. The workshop will discuss simulation modeling of the inter-scientist processes that contribute to the discovery, organization and verification of scientific knowledge. The focus is upon the development of simulations themselves, including models of: peer review, academic field self-organisation, citation networks, innovation, scientific reputation, funding allocation, cognitive models embedded a social setting, argumentation and social reasoning.
