Aims and Scope
--------------
Agent-based modeling and social simulation have emerged as both developments
of, and sometimes challenges to, the social sciences. Developments from
within the social sciences include agent-based computational economics and
investigations of theoretical sociological concepts using formal simulation
techniques. Challenges to the social sciences include the development of
qualitative modeling techniques, the implementation of agent-based models to
investigate phenomena for which conventional economic, social, and
organizational models have no face validity, and the application of physical
modeling techniques to social processes.

Approaches to model and theory validation have also been changed by the
advent of agent-based social simulation as econophysicists and others
develop models that produce numerical outputs that are difficult to analyze
by classical statistical or econometric methods. Some scholars use
logic-based social simulation approaches to search for new social theory,
while others question whether such theory is possible or even necessary. It
is increasingly common to develop social simulation models and approaches
that transcend disciplinary boundaries. Emergence of social structures and
norms through dynamic social interaction has long been an important concern.

Computational researchers have developed interests in agent-based social
simulation as a new scientific field and to provide test beds of new
computer and network technologies. Also there are practical requirements to
uncover phenomena of complex social activities such as world economics,
cooperation and competition across regions, social networks, environmental
issues such as social impacts of climate change, and spreading of epidemic
diseases.

The first World Conference on Social Simulation (WCSS-06) is intended to
bring together all of these approaches to social simulation and these
research agenda. WCSS-06 is sponsored by the main regional societies for
social simulation research: Pacific Asian Association for Agent-based
Approach in Social Systems Sciences (PAAA), the hosts and local organizers
of the conference, the North American Association for Computational Social
and Organizational Science (NAACSOS), and the European Social Simulation
Association (ESSA). Differences of objective, agenda and approach exist
within these regional societies and across these societies. WCSS-06 will
provide an opportunity for adherents to these different approaches to
explore their differences, to identify common features and goals and perhaps
to define and agree regarding methods and criteria for evaluating the
strengths, limitations and potentials of simulation techniques and applications.

WCSS-06 aims to promote agent-based social sciences, social simulation, and
new tools and techniques for social science education as well as research.
Topics
The topics include, but are not limited to, the following social simulation
issues

    * Methodologies for Agent-based Modeling

    * Validation Techniques
    * Hybrid Gaming Simulation
    * Social Simulation and Laboratory Experiment
    * Evidence Based Social Simulation

    * Applications of Agent-based Modeling

    * Computational Organization Theory
    * Collective Intelligence
    * Social Complexity
    * Social policies
    * Integrated social/physical modeling for environmental policy
    * Emergence of social structures and norms
    * Social simulation and software design
    * Advanced computing technologies (e.g. the grid) and social simulation.

    * Implications of Agent-Based Modeling for Social Theory

Program
-------
Conference Organization
WCSS-06 consists of invited and plenary papers, oral presentations of
papers, interactive posters and demonstrations, tutorials, workshops,
student ABM demonstrations, industrial exhibitions, and digital archives and
streaming of plenary talks. Financial support (travel grants) is available
for students chosen to present demonstrations of social simulations. The
procedures of paper submissions and workshop/exhibition proposals will be
available from the web site.

Plenary Speakers
“Abstraction and Evidence-based Modelling …Markets and Macroeconomics”&#12288;by
Professor Scott Moss, Vice President of ESSA, Centre for Policy Modelling,
Manchester Metropolitan University Business School
“Institutional Design and Strategic Networks…Modeling Multi-Scale
Interpretive Processes” by Professor David L. Sallach, President of NAACSOS
Argonne National Laboratory University of Chicago
“KAIZEN for Agent-Based Modeling” by Professor Takao TERANO, President of
PAAA, Tokyo Institute of Technology

Invited Speakers
“Putting the social into social simulation” by Professor Nigel Gilbert,
President of ESSA, Centre for Research on Social Simulation School of Human
Sciences University of Surrey, UK
“Toward a productive interaction betweeen simulations and theory in economic
science” by Professor Yoshinori SHIOZAWA, Graduate School for Creative
Cities, Osaka City University

Publication
-----------
All the accepted papers are included in the WCSS-06 proceedings. Electronic
proceedings such as CD-ROM are published as well as printed version. We are
also planning to publish post-proceedings including the selected papers
presented in WCSS-06 from Springer Verlag.

Paper and Proposal Format
-------------------------
 Your paper should not exceed 8 pages in length with one column as in a
single space. Use A4 paper (29.7cm x 21 cm), 2.5cm margins on the top and
sides, 3cm bottom margin. This includes all figures, tables, graphs, and
bibliography. Please, do *not* include the page numbers in your camera-ready
paper.
 The title of the paper is centered 2.5cm below the top of the page in 16
point bold font. Right below the title, the name of the authors, their
affiliation information and their email addresses should be written. The
font size for the authors is 12pt while their affiliation information is in
10pt. The author font is bold but the affiliation is not. The main text for
your paper should be 10pt font or larger.
 Manuscript should be submitted in PDF format via our Web-based electronic
submission system until Feb. 24, 2006.
