The lecture by Kristina Lerman from University of Southern California will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in room 201. If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract Social data often comes from a heterogeneous population composed of non-randomly sampled subgroups, each with different characteristics and behaviors. A population-level trend in the aggregate data may disappear or reverse itself when the same data is disaggregated into its underlying subgroups. This effect, known as Simpson’s…

CSH Talk by Borut Trpin: "Belief updating in untrustworthy circumstances"Location: Salon     Abstract:   Lying is traditionally defined as stating something that is believed to be false with the intention that the other person believes it to be true. However, there are cases where we believe something to be false only to an extent and we can nevertheless lie about it. We call this partial lying. We provide an epistemological analysis of these situations and investigate how the severity…

The lecture by Leonardo Zavojanni will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in room 201.   If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract: "Human society relates through different sorts of interactions that are not independent of each other. The question arises whether these interdependencies can be used to predict the dynamical behaviour of such relationships. Here we look for empirical evidence that the dynamic behaviour of a given layer of a social system…

This workshop, organized by Jan Korbel together with Stefan Thurner and Petr Jizba, will take place at the CSH Vienna.   Abstract The aim of this workshop is to discuss the question to what extent and how methods from information theory and (non-equilibrium) statistical physics can boost the understanding of complex dynamical multilevel systems. We want to fathom the limits of usefulness of thermodynamics for complex systems, and discuss if there are fundamental limits to a statistical theory of complex systems.…

The lecture by Max Pellert will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in room 201. If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract A dataset of general social media text-based expression was analyzed: 22 million status updates were donated by 153727 Facebook users. By applying a lexicon-based approach, we quantified emotions in each post in terms of valence, the degree of pleasure associated with an emotional experience, and arousal, the level of activity induced…

The lecture by Sibel Eker from International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at   Abstract A reduction in global meat consumption can significantly reduce the adverse environmental effects of the food system, yet it requires widespread diet changes. Such shifts to sustainable diets depend on several behavioral factors, which are not addressed yet in relation to the food system.…

The lecture by Nils Haug will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna in room 201. If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at Abstract Multimorbidity, the co-occurrence of two or more chronic diseases such as diabetes, obesity or cardiovascular diseases in one patient, is a frequent phenomenon.   To make care more efficient, it is of relevance to understand how different diseases condition each other over the life course of a patient. However, most of our…

The lecture by Ruth Pfeiffer, NIH, HHS, will take place at the Complexity Science Hub Vienna. Location: Salon If you are interested in participating, please email to office@csh.ac.at Abstract Electronic medical records and linked large databases are important resources for observational research.  However, the design and analysis of scientific studies based on such data require special considerations, as the data are usually not collected to answer scientific questions.   I have designed studies to assess risk factors for cancer by…
