DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dorota Żuchowska-Skiba (AGH Kraków)\nThe main goal
of our work is to show how ideas change in social networks. Our analysis
is based on three concepts: (i) temporal networks [1]\, (ii) the Axelrod m
odel of culture dissemination [2]\, (iii) the garbage can model of organiz
ational choice [3]. The use of the concept of temporal networks allows us
to show the dynamics of ideas spreading processes in networks\, thanks to
the analysis of contacts between agents in networks. The Axelrod culture d
issemination model allows us to use the importance of cooperative behavior
for the dynamics of ideas disseminated in networks. In the third model d
ecisions on solutions of problems are made as an outcome of sequences of p
seudorandom numbers. The origin of this model is the Herbert Simon’s vie
w on bounded rationality [4]. \nIn the Axelrod model\, ideas are conveyed
by chains of symbols. The outcome of the model should be the diversity of
evolving ideas as dependent on the chain length\, on the number of possib
le values of symbols and on the threshold value of Hamming distance which
enables the combination. \n\n[1] P. Holme and J. Saramaki\, Temporal netwo
