Call For Papers

The European Social Simulation Association and Warsaw School of Economics, Division of Decision Analysis and Support, invite researchers and scholars interested in applications and theoretical foundations of simulation modeling in social sciences to participate in the 9th European Social Simulation Association Conference.

The conference aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for social scientists, theorists, applied researchers and simulation modelers to cooperate and exchange ideas concerning state of the art in methods and applications of computational social sciences.

*Scope and Interests*

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Applications of agent-based modeling in social sciences
- Agent-based computational economics & finance
- Conflict resolution & cooperation
- Coupled human-natural systems
- Diffusion of innovations
- Dynamics of trust, social norm, structures, reputation & opinion
- Epidemiology & pharmacoeconomics
- Group decisions & collective behaviors
- Market design, mechanism design & auctions
- Privacy, safety & security
- Public policy & regulatory issues
- Resource management, environmental practices & policy
- Social emergence & evolution of institutions
- Social media and volunteered information
- Social networks and their dynamics
* Tools and methods for development of simulation models
- Advanced distributed computing
- Agent ontologies
- Agent-embodied Artificial Intelligence
- Model replication, verification & validation
- Participatory & Human-in-the-Loop simulations
- Simulation software & programming computational frameworks
* Techniques for visualizing, interpreting and analyzing simulation outputs
- Coupling simulations and optimization methods
- Data analysis software for simulations
- Experiment design and data farming for simulations
- Simulation metamodels
- Statistical & data mining techniques for simulated data

* Submission *

- Full paper - in the length of 10 to 12 pages, which should be comprehensive and consists of detailed presentation of theory, methodology and simulation results
- Extended abstract - in the length of 3 to 4 pages, which presents the current topic in progress with enough detail to ensure proper evaluation
- Poster - should present the current work in progress

* Contributions can be submitted to general session or the following special tracks:
- Adaptive behavior , social interactions and global environmental change: an agent-based perspective (chairs: T. Filatova, G. Polhill,R. van Duinen)
- Applications of computational social science in conflict and sensitive contexts (chair: A. Geller)
- Business applications of computational social science (chair: M. Łatek)
- Heterogeneity and interaction in macroeconomic modeling (chair: G. Koloch)
- Social simulation of science processes (chair: F. Squazzoni)
- Statistical analysis of simulation models (chair: B. Kamiński)
- Using qualitative rules to inform behavioral rules (chair: B. Edmonds)

* Important dates *

- Registration opens: 1 January 2013
- Paper submission closes: 1 March 2013
- Notification of acceptance: 15 April 2013
- Final manuscript due: 15 May 2013

* Paper publication *

* Accepted full papers will be published by Springer in the conference proceedings series "Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing", (indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP, Ulrich's, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS, Zentralblatt Math, MetaPress, Springerlink).
