SBE 2020: Submission Detail

ID Number: 243
Title: The Role and Potential Impact of Social, Behavioral and Economic Science Approaches to Networks in the First Half of the 21st Century: Grand Challenges of Substance and Methods
Lead Author: Pescosolido, Bernice A.
Abstract: The last decade has witnessed a path-breaking convergence between natural/physical, computing and SBE sciences in the adoption of a network approach to understanding phenomena from protein structures to global transportation connections. Although social sciences have been involved in the study of networks for nearly a century, recent innovations have come from physics, cognitive, computer and information sciences. While promising, the integration of insights from SBE sciences into the new Network Science is far from complete, not yet incorporating the full range of ideas and approaches. We introduce three grand challenges that stand in the way of Network Sciences potential to unlock the fundamental workings of natural, social and artificial systems.
