A selection of the best full papers will be published (upon authors’ agreement and after journal’s peer review) in JASSS, unless the author(s) choose(s) otherwise. All accepted submissions will be considered for a Springer Book, unless the author(s) choose(s) otherwise.


The conference topics include, but are not limited to, the list below. Unlisted but related topics are also acceptable, provided that they fit in the domain of social simulation (i.e., the application of computer simulation to the understanding of social dynamics and processes).

A list of 17 special tracks with calls for specific submissions is available here. When submitting your manuscript to EasyChair, you will indicate the track to which you would like to address your submission. If your submission does not fit any special track, you will address to the general track. If you are a PhD student and would like to compete for the best student paper award, indicate this at the bottom of the abstract that you are required to add during the submission of your paper within Easychair.
