CFP: The 4th International Conference on Behavioral, Economic, and Socio-Cultural Computing - 16-18 October, 2017 (BESC 2017)

The 4th International Conference on Behavioral, Economic, and Socio-Cultural
Computing (BESC2017)  will  take  place at the AGH University of Science
and Technology  in Krakow, POLAND, 16-18 October, 2017.

BESC aims to become a premier forum in which academic researchers
and industry practitioners from data  mining, artificial
intelligence, statistics and analytics, business and marketing,
finance and politics, and behavioral,  economic, social and psychological
sciences could present updated research efforts and progresses on foundational
and emerging  interdisciplinary topics of BESC, exchange  new ideas
and identify future research directions.

All accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well
as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) services, e.g. EI, DBLP and Thomson Reuters
(Web of Science). Top quality papers after presented in the conference
will be selected for extension and publication in several special issues
of international journals, including World Wide Web Journal (Springer),
Social Network Analysis and Mining (Springer) and Information
Discovery and Delivery Journal (SSCl-Indexed).

This edition of the conference takes place in Krakow, at the AGH University
of Science and Technology. Krakow is the second largest and one  of the oldest
cities in Poland. The city is located in the southern part of Poland
in the Lesser Poland region. The history of the city dates back to the 7th century.
Since the Middle Ages Krakow had been the capital of the Polish state until
the 17th century  and has kept the character of a spiritual capital
till the present day. Poland is a member of the European Union since May 2004
and belongs to Schengen Area since 2007.

The AGH University of Science and Technology (AGH-UST) is one of the leading technical
universities in Poland.  The university was established on 20th October, 1919,
and was formerly known as the University of Mining and Metallurgy.
