Welcome to the LABSS

We are a highly interdisciplinary research group working at the intersection among cognitive, social and computational sciences. Our lab is based at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council of Italy and aims to foster an explorative approach to Agent Based Modeling and Simulation.

PROTON meeting @CNR


On 3rd and 4th April, the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council in Rome is hosting a meeting of the European Project PROTON. The coordinators (UCSC and HUJI) and the simulation work-package leaders (ISTC-CNR), will work together to gather ideas for the development of organised crime and terrorist networks models, one of the key objectives of the project. PROTON project aims at improving existing knowledge on the processes of recruitment to organised crime and terrorist networks through an innovative integration between social and computational sciences.

SSC 2016 Video

It was an intense meeting, gathering people from all over the world and with different backgrounds. The SOCIAL SIMULATION CONFERENCE, SSC 2016, organized by the LABSS team at the National Research Council of Italy (September 19-23, 2016, Rome) is now condensed in a one minute and a half: enjoy the SSC 2016 video!

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!

POSTDOC POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT

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.

Lessons

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.
