On May 17th Pontus Strimling of the Institute For Future studies and Centre for studies of Cultural Evolution, Stockholm, gave a talk at the ISTC-CNR entitled “Why liberals are winning the culture war”.
The article Incentivi reputazionali alla cooperazione in un gioco competitivo tra adolescenti: Uno studio sperimentale (Reputational incentives to cooperation in a competitive game with adolescents: An experimental study), co-authored by LABSS researchers, was awarded with the first prize of the Vittorio Girotto Best AISC Paper 2016 of the Italian Association of Cognitive Sciences.
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!
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.
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.
