Please excuse multiple listing, but I thought this call for papers would 
be of interest to the mailing list.

The Computational Social Science Society of the Americas
Santa Fe, NM
22-25 August, 2013

  are invited to participate in the annual conference of the
Computational Social Science Society of the Americas (CSSSA).  The
conference will be held at The Bishop's Lodge in Santa Fe, New Mexico,
August 22nd - 25th, 2013.

Computational Social Science (CSS)
is a scientific discipline where computational methods and simulation
models of social dynamics are employed to offer new insights into social
  phenomena beyond what is available with traditional social science
methods.  The CSSSA 2013 Conference will bring together international
practitioners of CSS to present peer reviewed research using
computational social science methods.

Keynote Speakers:

   F. Railsback, Humboldt State University
J. Doyne Farmer, Oxford University & Santa Fe Institute

  CSSSA program committee invites papers and posters concerning
computational models of social phenomena.  Models from all social
science disciplines are welcomed.  Preference will be given to
submissions that present an implemented, functioning computer model or

All submissions, including posters, will be
subject to peer review.  The Program Committee and conference organizers
  may request that submissions for papers be converted into posters, or
vice versa, depending on scheduling and content.

Papers and posters can be submitted at:

  for the conference can be done online soon. (stay tuned for
registration link in the meantime please e-mail us at

  pecial Sessions:

Advances in Computational Social Science*The
  committee invites high quality papers that discuss theoretical concerns
  and other non-model based contributions to the field.  Limited space
will be available for such papers and only the very best and most
relevant of these submissions will be accepted.

Models of War and Peace
  2013 will highlight a special session with the theme of "Models of War
and Peace".  Submissions relating to this theme are especially welcome.

  should be submitted in Springer's "Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS)" format.  Papers should be no more than 12 pages including
bibliography and all figures.  Strong preference will be given to papers
  that include an attached ODD (Overview, Design Concepts, and Details)
protocol (see  This should
be included as an attached addendum to the submitted paper (merge with
the paper into one single document, with a blank page separating!
   the paper and the ODD addendum).  The ODD is not counted toward the 12
  page limit.

Poster submissions require only an 800 word abstract.  They should be clearly marked as poster submissions.

Paper Publication:
  accepted papers will be made publicly available on the CSSSA website.
While this posting does indicate successful conference peer review, the
CSSSA website is not a publication of record (no DOI or handle is
assigned) and should not interfere with the submission of the same
material to academic or professional journals.

A selection of
  the strongest papers (as determined by the Program Committee) will be
submitted (with the authors' consent) to the Journal of Artificial
Societies and Social Simulation (JASSS) for consideration as a special
issue of the journal.

Best Paper:
CSSSA offers a cash prize of $500 for the best paper.  All full-paper submissions are eligible for t!
  his prize.  The Program Committee will look most closely at papers wit
h clearly documented computational models that shed new light on social science phenomena.
