Supported by the COST Action PEERE (New Frontiers of Peer Review), this session aims to attract contributions that apply social simulation to understanding peer review in science. A special attention will be given to works that model peer review dynamics, looks at scientist behaviour and its implications and test policy scenarios. Also contributions that aims to set methodological standards and propose ad-hoc platforms and models are welcome. The COST Action PEERE will support the participation of eligible speakers by covering travel and accomodation expenses. For any information, please contact email@example.com
Computational organisation theory involves understanding organisational processes by means of computer simulation. It considers organisations as complex adaptive systems where the processes of organising are dependent on factors such as structural interdependencies among organisational subunits and individual behaviour. Both intra-organisational issues (e.g., relationship between organisational structure and performance characteristics) and inter-organisational processes (e.g., firm strategy and competition dynamics) are of interest to this session.
