Social Network Dynamics and Impact on Financial Markets

26-27 January 2023
IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca, Italy

Social media platforms provide a significant channel for people to connect, share opinions, spread and process information. How we interact with each other leads to large-scale phenomena, and recently financial markets have been repeatedly influenced by viral social media trends. These online financial coordinated operations receive massive attention from the media, financial stakeholders, and the academic community.

In this workshop, we will explore the key ingredients leading the stock to go viral and how we can model and early detect online coordination that has a social and practical impact.

The workshop will be in hybrid mode, with the possibility to participate online or in presence.
