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.
