2022-08-03 The publication "Temporal network epistemology: On reaching consensus in a real-world setting" previously published as an arXiv preprint has been accepted to Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science and is available at https://doi.org/10.1063/5.0074992 (open access).
2022-08-02 In the work "CasSeqGCN: Combining network structure and temporal sequence to predict information cascades" recently published in Expert Systems with Applications we propose a CasSeqGCN model that combines information cascades embeddings and LSTMs to predict future cascades' size. The research on this topic has been conducted in collaboration with researchers from Southwest University (China) and is available at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.eswa.2022.117693 (open access).
2022-08-01 The work "Improving Cellular Automata for Distributed Ledgers" mentioned in the previous news has been published and is available at this link.
2022-03-15 The publication in which a mechanism leading to reducing metastable cases for cellular automata algorithm in distributed ledgers has been proposed was accepted for presentation at the 3rd Workshop on Secure IoT, Edge and Cloud systems (SIoTEC) 2022. The work has been co-authored with Piotr Macek, Daria Dziubałtowska and Bartosz Kuśmierz (all from IOTA Foundation).

The aim of the project is to investigate how much information about human interactions can be derived from data streams using representations less complex than social networks.
2021-05-24 On May 28th at the Statistical Physics in Complex Systems (SPiCy) seminar I will be giving a talk titled "On modelling and studying diffusion in social networks - current challenges". Since the meeting is virtual, everyone is invited to join - more details here.
2021-03-11 The paper that further investigates sequential seeding - a metamethod for nodes activation in social networks - has been accepted and published in Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science. In this work we propose and evaluate a sequential seeding approach for multilayer networks. The work is titled "Sequential seeding in multilayer networks" and it has been co-authored by Piotr Bródka (PWr), Jarosław Jankowski (ZUT), and me. We also published an accompanying code.
