Call for Papers for:

ESSA 2009

The 6th Conference of the European Social Simulation Association Conference

14-18 September 2009, Univ. of Surrey, Guilford (just outside London), UK.

Deadline for submissions: 14th April, 2009

http://cress.soc.surrey.ac.uk/essa2009

ESSA 2009 will, like its predecessors, attract the best papers from
across the world, describing the newest and most significant social
simulation work. These will cover: human, animal and artificial
societies, and apply a wide range of techniques. Social Simulation
seems to be at a "tipping point" between revolutionary and normal
science where it is introducing more rigour into its methods. Come to
participate in the formation of a new science!

The invited speakers are:

* Mark Bedau, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Reed College and
Editor of Artificial Life

* Jim Doran, Emeritus Professor of the Univ. of Essex and one of the
founders of Social Simulation

* Tim Kohler, Professor in the Dept. of Anthropology, Washington State
University and Santa Fe

Submission

Reasonably mature papers on all aspects of social simulation will be
carefully and anonymously considered  however most papers will (1)
describe an individual/agent-based computer simulation (2) exhibit the
outcomes of running the simulation in more than a cursory way and (3)
make some comparison of these with either: evidence from, or other
models of, social phenomena (human, animal or artificial).  If you are
in doubt as to the relevance of a paper, you may email the Scientific
Chair for his opinion (see below), however the decisions about
relevance will be made by the Programme Committee.  See the conference
website for details as to submission procedure.

All the accepted papers will be included in the ESSA 2009 electronic
proceedings. The best accepted papers will be published in a separate
post-proceedings.

The Venue

The conference will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford.
The Sociology Department there is rated as one of the top centres for
sociology research in the UK.  It is just outside London in the pretty
town of Guilford, near Heathrow Airport and easily accessible from
Gatwick.

Organizing Committee

The conference chair is Nigel Gilbert, University of Surrey, UK

Other members of the organising committee are:

* Edmund Chattoe, University of Leicester, UK
* Bruce Edmonds, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK (Scientific Chair)
* Fred Amblard, University of Toulouse, France
* Flaminio Squazzoni, University of Brescia, Italy
* Lu Yang, University of Surrey, UK (Admin)

There is a large and varied program committee representing the top
social simulation academics from across the world, covering a large
variety of different views and approaches.  For a list of PC members
see the website.

Call for Papers for:

ESSA 2009

The 6th Conference of the European Social Simulation Association Conference
14-18 September 2009, Univ. of Surrey, Guilford (just outside London), UK.
Deadline for papers: 14th April, 2009
http://cress.soc.surrey.ac.uk/essa2009

The Conference

Computer simulation is a powerful tool for helping us understand
aspects of society (both observed and in the abstract). However, how
best to do this and under what conditions it is useful are still open
questions.

ESSA 2009 will, like its predecessors, attract the best papers from
across the world, describing the newest and most significant social
simulation work. The papers will cover a wide range of social
subjects: human, animal and artificial, and apply a wide range of
simulation techniques. The methodology and, indeed, the very nature of
the enterprise will be discussed and debated. The simulations
described will go from the abstract to the specific and practical.
Results and ideas from social simulation are starting to inform real
life decisions (for good or ill) and there will be, no doubt,
considerable discussion about this. A hot issue will be how and when
one should compare a simulation to evidence.

Social Simulation seems to be at a "tipping point" between
revolutionary and normal science where it is trying to introduce more
care and rigour into its methods. Come participate in the formation of
a new science!

The invited speakers are:

* Mark Bedau, Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Reed College and
Editor of Artificial Life
* Jim Doran, Emeritus Professor of the Univ. of Essex and one of the
founders of Social Simulation
* Tim Kohler, Professor in the Dept. of Anthropology, Washington State
University and Santa Fe

Submission of papers

Reasonably mature papers on all aspects of social simulation will be
carefully and anonymously considered -- however most papers will (1)
describe an individual/agent-based computer simulation (2) exhibit the
outcomes of running the simulation in more than a cursory way and (3)
make some comparison of these with either: evidence from, or other
models of, social phenomena (human, animal or artificial).  The
ultimate goal of social simulation is to use computer simulations to
increase our understanding of observed social phenomena -- in some
sense papers will be judged on their long-term contribution to this
project.

[Notes: Purely philosophical papers will be accepted if of exceptional
importance but there is a specialist series of workshops for such
papers (the "EPOS" workshops).  Papers concerned with the social
phenomena of exchange (i.e. those with an economic subject) are
welcome and will be considered equally to all others but be aware
there are different standards of judgement in social simulation - in
particular, modelling assumptions are expected to be more credible at
the micro level; and they are generally individual-based, focussing on
the interaction between actors.]

If you are in doubt as to the relevance of a paper, you may email the
Scientific Chair for his opinion; however the decision as to the
relevance will be made by the reviewers of the paper.

You can submit either full papers (12 pages) or short papers (6
pages). These will be anonymous and reviewed by 2-5 reviewers on the
usual criteria of relevance, soundness, significance, and readability.
  Full papers will be presented either during plenary sessions or the
parallel sessions, depending on their evaluation. They will be
considered also for the post-proceedings publication. Short papers
will be considered only for parallel sessions.  All the accepted
papers will be included in the ESSA 2009 electronic proceedings.

The Deadline for all submissions is 14th April 2009.  See the website
for full details on submission:
http://cress.soc.surrey.ac.uk/essa2009/submission.php

Student Papers

PhD students who are a principle author of a submitted paper should
indicate this by indicating the appropriate option during the
electronic submission procedure (if they wish to be considered for a
bursary or award).

There will be up to 5 bursaries of value 500 available for PhD
students who are a principle author of an accepted paper.  To be
eligible the student must: attend the conference; be a paid-up member
of ESSA; and not have access to other sources of funding (in the
opinion of the ESSA 2009 organisers).

Separately, the best such "student paper" will be awarded as the "Best
Student Paper -- ESSA 2009" at the conference.

The Venue

The conference will be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford.
The Sociology Department of the University of Surrey is rated as one
of the top centres for sociology research in the UK.  The Centre for
Research in Social Simulation (CRESS) there has been crucial for the
development of social simulation across the world, hosting the seminal
workshops in 1992 and 1994 as well as being home to the Journal of
Artificial Societies and Social Simulation.
