This project will explore how ICT and lessons from the software engineering and social web communities can be applied to provoke a radical paradigm shift in the way scientific knowledge is created, disseminated, evaluated, and maintained. This new paradigm will transform a scientific publication from a static artifact to a Liquid Publication that can take multiple forms, that evolves continuously, and is enriched by multiple sources.


The main objective of this project is to explore the emergent scientific space generated by the intersection of three different paradigms dedicated to the study of self-organizing mechanisms in social systems: prehistoric etno-anthropology and social anthropology, experimental economics, and multiagent systems.
