Social Norms: Emergence, Persistence, and Effects at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN

The Center for the Dynamics of Social Complexity (DySoC) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop, Social Norms: Emergence, Persistence, and Effects, to be held April 23-25, 2019, at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS).

Objectives:
Human social behavior is controlled by many interacting factors including material cost-benefit considerations, genetically-informed social instincts, personality, and culturally transmitted norms, values, and institutions. A social norm is a behavior that one is expected to follow and expects others to follow in a given social situation. Understanding the emergence, persistence, and effects of social norms is crucial for developing better policies affecting the life of the society as a whole and of its individual members. This workshop brings together active scholars interested in various aspect of social norms in an attempt to stimulate new synergies, insights, and collaborations. We envision this meeting as a truly transdisciplinary gathering of researchers from diverse disciplines including sociology, anthropology, psychology, economics, evolutionary biology, cultural evolution, neurobiology, political science, history, and experts on extremism, marketing, communications, as well as policy scholars and practitioners.

Extending the Theory of Sustainability at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Center for the Dynamics of Social Complexity (DySoC) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop, Extending the Theory of Sustainability, to be held December 5-7, 2018, at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS).

Objectives:
Cultural evolutionary modeling and empirical work to understand the processes of social and political change has advanced quickly in recent years and can potentially provide useful tools to understand the human dimensions of sustainability. This workshop will review the state of sustainability theory. Major themes of the workshop include the role of cultural evolution, the role of evolving technology and R&D investments, diffusion of technology, uncertainty in ecosystem management, non-autonomous models of climate change, models of institutional change. The workshop will convene scholars in the fields of economics, socio-political evolution, the natural sciences and mathematics to present the latest developments. Discussions will center on promising areas for new research and on gaps in the modeling enterprise.

Location:
The Center for the Dynamics of Social Complexity at NIMBioS, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Co-Organizers:
Peter Richerson (Environmental Science and Policy, Univ. of California, Davis); Eli Fenichel, Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale Univ.; Sergey Gavrilets (Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Mathematics, Univ. of Tennessee)

Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods at Max Planck Institut, Ploen, G.

Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Ploen, Germany, Sept 5-7th 2018.
Application deadline: April 30th 2018.

We are happy to announce the workshop Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods taking place in Ploen on September 5 - 7th, 2018.

Objective:
We aim at bringing together researchers working on different structures that influence the evolution of populations. Structures are here broadly conceived, they may be spatial structures (e.g. individuals living in a subdivided territory), interaction-based structures (e.g. food webs) as well as demographic structures (e.g. life cycles). The workshop is meant to be an occasion in which one gets to know techniques and ideas used by other scholars to deal with seemingly different structures that may extrapolate to the study of one's own structure of interest.

Speakers are: Annette Baudisch (University of Southern Denmark), Oana Carja (University of Pennsylvania), Hal Caswell (University of Amsterdam), Nicole Creanza (Vanderbilt University), Florence Debarre (Centre Interdisciplinaire de Recherche en Biologie), André M. de Roos (University of Amsterdam) and Bartlomiej Waclaw (University of Edinburgh).

Registration and abstract submission is open until April 30th:

https://workshops.evolbio.mpg.de/event/7/registrations/7/

Prior to the start of the workshop, Hal Caswell will give a tutorial about sensitivity analysis of demographic models for ecology and evolution in the morning of the first day (Sept 5th). It is meant mostly for junior scientists and researchers new to demographic modelling; some math background is assumed. This tutorial is limited to 20 participants.

We hope to see you at the workshop. Please spread the word to potentially interested colleagues.

Best wishes,
Stefano Giaimo & Laura Hindersin
