Abstract

Social networks are evidently dynamic; they evolve continuously. Our circle of friends, neighbours and contacts keeps changing with our age and lifecycle events (e.g. marriage). So do our beliefs about our (cognitive) environment, later translated into our activity-travel behaviour. To understand long-term behaviour and decision changes, it is imperative to understand these patterns in a dynamic setting. In this paper, we review the state of the art in travel behaviour research related to social networks and put forward our research concept for a project that is part of a larger research program which aims at developing dynamic activity-based models.
