Social Simulation
for a Digital Society


The Social Simulation Conference 2017 will be held in the O'Brien Centre in UCD, Dublin on 25 – 29 September, 2017.

This is the 13th Annual Conference of the European Social Simulation Association (ESSA) which is the main European scientific society to promote social simulation and computational social science.

The aim of this international conference is to share and foster a deeper understanding of how complex social problems can be understood through computational simulations and techniques.


This year’s conference will explore the theme “Social Simulation for a Digital Society” through stimulating cross-disciplinary research and using applied and methodological tools in a transforming society.


We’ve invited some of the top speakers from within the field, and from outside disciplines, to produce a scientific programme that will give you new and cutting-edge insights that can be applied to your daily work.


Cozy pubs, friendly locals and a city steeped in history; these are just some of the many reasons why Dublin is such a welcoming and fantastic host city for the 2017 Social Simulation Conference.
