The SOCIAL SIMULATION CONFERENCE, SSC 2016, the 6th joint meeting of ESSA, PAAA, and CSSSA, will be held in Rome, September 19-23, 2016.

We cordially invite researchers and practitioners from all over the world to Rome, “caput mundi”, to share their latest results and foster our understanding of social complexity problems by means of computational simulations.

SSC2016 will be the 6th joint meeting (previously known as WCSS) of the three main scientific societies for Social Simulation, Social Systems Science and Computational Social Science:

  • ESSA (European Social Simulation Association), representing Europe;
  • PAAA (Pacific-Asian Association for Agent-based Approach in Social Systems Sciences), representing Asia and Oceania;
  • CSSSA (Computational Social Science Society of America), representing the Americas

We welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners with an interest in social simulation, from a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, archaeology, artificial intelligence, biology, computer science, economics, environmental sciences, geography, history, political sciences, psychology and sociology, whether theoretical, experimental, practical, or technical.

AE2016, the 12th edition of the Artificial Economics Conference Series, will be co-located with SSC 2016.
