||WG4: Anthropology and physics: prospects and challenges, Local organizer Alex Bentley UK: How far can the social
atom be used to illuminate anthropological questions?
How parsimonious can models be in this context?
How can models be validated in areas such as anthropology where data is by definition sparse and noisy?
These questions were stimulated via a number of papers spanning a number of papers including evolution of opinions in a French context; studies of massive data base data for social networks across mobile phone networks; emergence within biological anthropological models of cultural ‘founder’ effects amplified by population growth into strongly demarcated differences between cultural groups with initially weak cultural bias in human migration.

||WG1: Evolution of religious belief in society, Local organizer Juergen Mimkes DE: Central focus was, modelling religious belief as a ‘degree of freedom’ of an agent on a human genre network. The meeting provided a new and important bridge with academic historians who perceived new perspectives and methodologies that could advance insights. Thermodynamics as well as statistical physics were shown to provide new routes to the understanding of evolution of religious beliefs common to all societies. A similarity to the growth of firms was noted in the case of the Mormon Church.
