Dear all,

The deadline for the Annual conference of the Computational Social Science Society of America 2011 is extended till July 1, 2011.

We are pleased to announce that Uri Wilensky of Northwestern University (, the author of Netlogo, will be the keynote speaker.

We also are pleased to announce that we included a poster session for which only an abstract need to be submitted.

CSSSA 2011

Santa Fe, NM, USA

October 9-12, 2011

Over the past decade simulating social processes has become increasingly important in the social and life sciences. The Computational Social Science Society of America organizes its second conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The 2011 conference will provide a forum for presenting models and discussing present research and future directions.
Papers and presentations can cover a wide range of research topics, including
*                     Social networks and their dynamics
*                     Information and opinion dynamics
*                     Trust, reputation and norm dynamics
*                     Conflict and cooperation
*                     Social-ecological systems
*                     Collective behavior
*                     Agent-based computational economics
*                     Cultural dynamics
*                     Market dynamics and consumer behavior
*                     Innovation diffusion
*                     Empirically grounded agent-based modeling
*                     Model replication and validation
*                     Agent-based modeling platforms
*                     Participatory modeling and simulation
