You are cordially invited to submit a contribution to "Collective Behaviors and
Networks", a one-day satellite event of the 2013 European Conference on Complex
Systems (ECCS'13), to be held in Barcelona, September 19, 2013.

Goal of this workshop is to provide a discussion venue about advances in the
study of networks applied to the dynamics of social collective behaviors.
Particular attention will be devoted, but not limited to, the following topics:

     - Group formation, evolution and group behavior analysis.
     - Modeling, tracking and forecasting dynamic groups in social media.
     - Community detection and dynamic community structure analysis.
     - Social simulation, cultural, opinion, and normative dynamics.
     - Empirical calibration and validation of agent-based social models.
     - Models of social capital, collective action, social movements.
     - Coevolution of network and behavior.
