This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Social, Cultural, and Behavioral Modeling & Prediction and Behavior Representation in Modeling and Simulation, SBP-BRiMS 2016, held in Washington, DC, USA, in June/July 2016. The 38 full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 78 submissions. The goal of this conference was to build a new community of social cyber scholars by bringing together and fostering interaction between members of the scientific, corporate, government and military communities interested in understanding, forecasting and impacting human socio-cultural behavior. For this three challenges have to be met: deep understanding, socio-cognitive reasoning, and re-usable computational technology. Thus papers come from a wide number of disciplines: computer science, psychology, sociology, communication science, public health, bioinformatics, political science, and organizational science.

Social computing is concerned with the study of social behavior and social c- text based on computational systems. Behavioral modeling reproduces the social behavior, and allows for experimenting, scenario planning, and deep understa- ing of behavior, patterns, and potential outcomes. The pervasive use of computer and Internet technologies provides an unprecedented environment of various - cial activities. Social computing facilitates behavioral modeling in model building, analysis, pattern mining, and prediction. Numerous interdisciplinary and inter- pendent systems are created and used to represent the various social and physical systems for investigating the interactions between groups, communities, or nati- states. This requires joint efforts to take advantage of the state-of-the-art research from multiple disciplines, social computing, and behavioral modeling in order to document lessons learned and develop novel theories, experiments, and methodo- gies in terms of social, physical, psychological, and governmental mechanisms. The goal is to enable us to experiment, create, and recreate an operational environment with a better understanding of the contributions from each individual discipline, forging joint interdisciplinary efforts. This is the second international workshop on Social Computing, Behavioral ModelingandPrediction. The submissions were from Asia, Australia, Europe, and America. Since SBP09 is a single-track workshop, we could not accept all the good submissions. The accepted papers cover a wide range of interesting topics.

This volume explores decision-making styles, including cooperative, collaborative, avoidant, competitive, and dominate that are commonly modified by the culture. Culture is not a stagnant phenomenon, and many variables need to be considered to accurately evaluation cultural differences in decision-making styles. Among many cultural factors, the individual ("I" culture) – collectivism ("we" culture) dimension is one of the most important influential factor to be considered when studying culture difference, including decision-making styles.

This reference focuses on decision-making styles within cultures. It focuses on cooperative, collaborative, avoidant, competitive, and dominant styles of decision making, and discusses how each process is modified by the culture. The contributors examine issues within culture that affect decision making, such as individualism and collectivism, considered the most important influences in decision making. This reference is one of 10 predicted to be derived from the 2012 Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE) Conference.

Explore the military and combat applications of modeling andsimulation Engineering Principles of Combat Modeling and DistributedSimulation is the first book of its kind to address the threeperspectives that simulation engineers must master forsuccessful military and defense related modeling: the operationalview (what needs to be modeled); the conceptual view (how to docombat modeling); and the technical view (how to conductdistributed simulation). Through methods from the fields ofoperations research, computer science, and engineering, readers areguided through the history, current training practices, and modernmethodology related to combat modeling and distributed simulationsystems. Comprised of contributions from leading internationalresearchers and practitioners, this book provides a comprehensiveoverview of the engineering principles and state-of-the-art methodsneeded to address the many facets of combat modeling anddistributed simulation and features the following foursections: Foundations introducesrelevant topics and recommended practices, providing the neededbasis for understanding the challenges associated with combatmodeling and distributed simulation. Combat Modeling focuses onthe challenges in human, social, cultural, and behavioral modelingsuch as the core processes of "move, shoot, look, and communicate"within a synthetic environment and also equips readers with theknowledge to fully understand the related concepts andlimitations. Distributed Simulationintroduces the main challenges of advanced distributed simulation,outlines the basics of validation and verification, and exhibitshow these systems can support the operational environment of thewarfighter. Advanced Topics highlightsnew and developing special topic areas, including mathematicalapplications fo combat modeling; combat modeling with high-levelarchitecture and base object models; and virtual and interactivedigital worlds. Featuring practical examples and applications relevant toindustrial and government audiences, Engineering Principles ofCombat Modeling and Distributed Simulation is an excellentresource for researchers and practitioners in the fields ofoperations research, military modeling, simulation, and computerscience. Extensively classroom tested, the book is also ideal forcourses on modeling and simulation; systems engineering; and combatmodeling at the graduate level.
