An updated announcement - note the submission deadline has been changed 
to Nov. 15. 

The 2010 International Conference on Social Computing, Behavioral 
Modeling, & Prediction (SBP10), the largest conference devoted to social 
science-related research in computer science, will be held March 
29-April 1 on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Campus in 
Bethesda, MD near Washington D.C.   I am co-program chair this year, and 
am particularly interested in gaining the participation of more social 
scientists in order to make this a fully interdisciplinary conference.  
This year, we will be featuring some unique events designed to promote 
that interchange.  The first day will be devoted to tutorial sessions, 
including those on computer science methods for social scientists and 
vice versa.  Tutorials tentatively scheduled include introductions to 
principles of agent-based simulation; comparisons of network models in 
sociology, physics, and economics; and application of computational 
behavioral models to public health.  If you have a proposal for a 
tutorial, particularly one introducing methods from the mathematical 
social sciences to outsiders, please send a brief description directly 
to me at <sunki at hawaii.edu> by November 15.

The last half-day will be devoted to informal round tables to bring 
together social and computer scientists for intellectual 
cross-fertilization, as well as for forming interdisciplinary, 
interuniversity teams that could work together on grant applications.  I 
welcome suggestions for topics to be covered at these roundtables.

Short papers (approx 6-10 pages) and poster submissions are due November 
15.  As in past years, there will be opportunities to hear presentations 
from and talk to representatives of the largest federal funding agencies 
for scholarly research, including the National Science Foundation, 
National Institutes of Health, Office of Naval Research, and Air Force 
Office of Scientific Research.  Conference papers will be published as a 
book in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series by 
Springer/Verlag.  More information, including the call for papers and 
previous years's programs, can be found at the conference website 
<http://sbp.asu.edu/>.  If you have any questions, please feel free to 
contact me.
