Workshop focus questions in order of judged level of interest....

Key Questions in rough order of interest (as judged by a quick show of hands by workshop participants):
  • What data sources are there available to help text/develop simulations of scientific processes?
  • How do the cognitive and social processes interact to develop collective knowledge?
  • What do simulations suggest about the organisation of research?
  • How can we progress our understanding of science using social simulation?
  • How do the social processes contribute to the agreement/disagreement between groups of scientists? 
  • Are there any cognitive "foundations" upon which to base social simulations of science?
  • How is division of labour/specialisation self-organised in science?
