Computational Modeling of Terrorism
Monday, September 11, 4:30-5:45
Exploratory Hall, Room 3301
Computational social scientists have investigated terrorism for decades, but only recently has the field advanced to creating the first testable formal theories. This talk will review some important background and present recent advances in agent-based modeling of terrorism, based on radicalization theory and research. Enduring challenges will also be covered, as opportunities for research projects, theses, and dissertations.
Dr. Cioffi-Revilla is a Professor of Computational Social Science, founding and former Chair of the Department of Computational Social Science, and founding and current Director of the Mason Center for Social Complexity at George Mason University. He holds two doctoral degrees in Political Science and International Relations and his areas of special interest include quantitative, mathematical, and simulation models applied to complex human and social systems.
