Our unit will be present in considerable numbers at the upcoming Social Simulation Conference, the annual conference of ESSA. Together with Bruce Edmonds, Nigel Gilbert and Ruth Meyer, Petra Ahrweiler organized two sessions on the issue of “Social Simulation in the Policy World”. Furthermore, she will announce next year´s SSC, which will take place at the University of Mainz. Martin Neumann will give a speech entitled “Exploring the horizon of a cultural space”, which will be a part of the session “Using qualitative data to inform behavioral rules in agent-based models”. Our student assistants Marc Möller-Boldt and Dario Brockschmidt will visit the conference as members of the 2019 organization team and will take a look behind the scenes of this year´s organization.
