Professor Tim Friede joins the newly founded Sino-German Institute of Social Computing (SGISC)

At the heart of the new Institute of the Universities of Göttingen in Germany and Nanjing in China lies interdisciplinary research on social networks and BIG DATA. With the objective of advancing research in the field and combining it with academic exchange and graduate training, the two long-time partner universities have now formed the Sino-German Institute of Social Computing (SGISC). Social computing is concerned with exploring and understanding social behaviour, network analysis, interaction, cooperation and evolution among human beings as well as other types of entities in physical and cyber worlds with the aid of pervasive information and communication technologies.
