This symposium brings together researchers specialized in the interaction between the dynamics of information dissemination in technological networks (often called “virtual” as the agents do not necessarily know each other personally) and the society in real world. Recent examples, like the Arab Spring or the Spanish riots of May 15th, show clearly how the activities of opinion groups formed in socio-technological networks like Tweeter of others, have direct socio economic consequences in the real world.
This situation requires the study of the dissemination dynamics of opinions on the network as well as the dynamics of the network itself. Moreover, as the same actors may play a role in the connected world and in the real world, it is necessary to take into account the coupling of these two kinds of networks (multiplexes).
