CONFERENCES > 2004 ESSA
2nd International Conference of the European Social Simulation Association
and 2nd Model To Model Workshop
Valladolid (Spain), September 16-19, 2004
There is growing agreement that the time has come to form a learned society to promote the development of social simulation’
( Quote from the ESSA site)
This conference took place at the University of Valladolid, one of the oldest universities. The conference aims at bringing together social scientists and experts in social simulation, to explore current theoretical and applied developments in simulation of social complex systems. Conference focus topics included (but not limited to):
formalising behavioural theory in agent properties,
simulating social phenomena that emerges from interactions of multiple agents (e.g. the evolution of norms),
simulating empirically based stylised social facts (e.g., typical dynamics of innovation diffusion) and
simulating behaviour in complex environments (e.g., traffic flows, water management etc).
The conference provided an ideal setting for extended presentations and lively discussions on social simulation.
