Mission completed: SSC 2016, ESSA^4

We are glad to announce that the LABSS team has successfully completed the two main organizional tasks for the year 2016: the Social Simulation Conference, SSC 2016, and the ESSA Summer School (it was already autumn, but we don’t let details as such deter us).

We have our own Twitter voice now – @LABSS-CNR – and we are going to update this website more often. Stay tuned!


The Laboratory of Agent Based Social Simulation at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies CNR is seeking candidates for a one-year post-doc position (renewable up to 3-years) to work on the EU Horizon 2020 project ‘PROTON’ for simulative research on the evolution of organized crime and terrorist networks.

Social Simulation Conference 2016

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.

Mathematical modeling: dynamics of nonlinear systems and chaos.
Socio-economic framework.

Aprile, 16. 2015

This course is designed to be a bridge between the study of mathematics and the application of mathematics to various fields. It provides an overview of how the mathematical pieces of an applied problem fit together.

Mathematical modeling is the process of creating a mathematical representation of some phenomenon in order to gain a better understanding of that phenomenon. The main goal of this course is to learn how to make creative use of some mathematical tools, such as difference equations, ordinary and partial differential equations, and numerical analysis, to build a mathematical description of biological, social and economic phenomena.
