Title: Cognitive Frames, Habits, Culture, Institutions – Features and Mechanisms to Reduce Complexity and Explain / Enable Action

Speaker: Matthias Gsänger

Abstract: Like any other virus, COVID-19 depends on humans meeting each other and behaving in certain patterns. All over the world governments attempt to curtail the spread of COVID-19 by influencing and controlling their citizens behaviour. At this both "government agencies" and "normal people" appear as actors, that, facing a new, uncertain situation, experience themselves as compelled to restructure their perception and action. Both process information concerning COVID-19 according to their own (cognitive) structures and both consider signals from each other. In this contribution I want to put some socioscientific approaches up for discussion concerning their power to describe and explain relevant social phenomena and their suitability for translating those descriptions into mathematics.

The COVID-19 Epidemiological Modelling Project presents a series of talks on the pandemic. Previous talks can be viewed again on YouTube:
