Social Simulation Conference 2019: Social Simulation for Social Policy

Date: 23 September 2019 - 27 September 2019
Location: Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany

This year’s special theme will be “Social Simulation for Social Policy” with foci on the areas of Urban Planning – Environmental, economic, demographic and social perspectives. There will be dedicated keynotes, a plenary Policy Modelling track, a practitioner round table on federal policies for demographic change, two modelling challenges – one for scholars, one for students – with local stakeholders from Mainz city planning and urban policy making, where conference participants will be called to compete for a city simulation award. A specific challenge call will be published in April 2019.

The ESSA community had been invited to vote for new, more interactive formats for presentations and discussions at the conference. We will communicate the voting results to track organisers for consideration in organizing their sessions and will organise the plenary programme in accordance with the voting results ourselves.
