Reviews

From the reviews:

“It consists of 51 contributions, including four keynotes and 46 short papers … all unified by the common thread given by the theme of the conference. … Social scientists can find a reliable measure of the evolution of the ‘computing’ field. Computer scientists can appreciate the growth of computational applications and eventually understand which are the tools more used in the field. Finally, mathematical psychologists can discover new approaches to social interaction and appreciate the stage of development of this field.” (Ugo Merlone, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, April, 2012)
