e-Infrastructures for Social Simulation Workshop, 26 October (Manchester)
This workshop is also part of the Agenda Setting Workshops series. In the 
last decade, the computer simulation of social phenomena has become an 
increasingly popular research method. The aim of the workshop is to 
investigate how these technical and organisational advancements can be 
exploited to create effective and sustainable e-infrastructures for social 
simulation research. The aim of the workshop is to be genuinely agenda 
setting, producing: 

* a set of use cases, ordered by priority, for sustainable e-
infrastructures for social simulation 
* an agenda of actions and initiatives required to implement the use cases

NCeSS Visiting Research Fellowships Scheme Announced

The NCeSS hub hosts a programme of visiting research fellowships in e-
social science. The scheme allows scholars to make an extended visit to 
the NCeSS hub at the University of Manchester to explore how e-science 
might benefit their own social science research. Fellows have the 
assistance of the NCeSS hub team of social scientists, computer scientists 
and Manchester Computing specialist support staff to advise them in 
complementing the NCeSS research programme by investigating how Grid 
technologies might provide new approaches to addressing their social 
science research questions.
See for more details and how 
to apply.
