Signed networks and their applications

ONLINE Satellite at NetSci 2022

The aim of this satellite is to discuss recent advances in modelling signed relations in numerous contexts as well as conceptualising new methodologies towards open questions in the field.

Signed networks play an important role in many disciplines related to complex systems. Signed networks are used in modelling evolution of the social networks of varying scale. In the scale of human relationships, they allow understanding the phenomena of polarisation and fragmentation of societies. They explain the formation of ''echo chambers'' in online political discourse. Moreover, they model processes of opinion formation and epidemic spreading. In the scale of organisations, signed networks are applied in political science to analyse changes in international relations, predict government formation, study the dynamics of stock markets and improve decision-making processes. Signed models explain observed patterns in real-world networks confirming or disproving proposed theories from social sciences.
