Contribution title: Synchronization in networks of interacting agents

Interacting agents, from animals to humans, react to the behavioral changes of neighbors. In particular, imitation is a common and simple behavior that has been well characterized in experiments with gregarious animals. Using a data-driven imitation model, we study how the emerging collective patterns are strongly affected by the topological structure of the network of contacts and analyze how global collective patterns depend on the level of knowledge each individual has on the system, exploring the whole range, from limited local to global information on the system.
