BEHAVE is proud to announce that the 2020 Social Simulation Conference will take place at the University of Milan on 14-18 September 2020. Supported by BEHAVE and hosted by the Department of Social and Political Sciences, SSC is the main annual event of ESSA-The European Social Simulation Association, the largest association connecting all scholars interested in using computer simulation to study, design and manage social processes.

The 2020 edition in Milan follows a series of succesfull conferences regularly hosted every year since 2003 in various European cities, including Mainz 2019, Stockholm 2018, Dublin 2017, Rome 2016, Gronigen 2015 and Barcelona 2014, to cite the latest.


The conference will be hosted at the prestigious Faculty of Political Sciences, Via Conservatorio 7, 2122 Milan, in the downtown. It will attract a variety of local, national and international stakeholders interested in the application of agent-based modelling and other simulation techniques to the analysis of complex social and organisational systems, with a particular emphasis on management and public policy purposes.

The venue will permit all participants to enjoy one of the most vibrant cities in Europe, with a incredible variety of artistic attractions (e.g., The Duomo, one of the best examples of Flamboyant Gothic style worldwide, somehow unique in Italy, decorated with 2,245 marble statues, the famous Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper, the magnificient Vittorio Emmanuele’s Gallery, the incredible art collection of Renaissance Brera Palace and Sforzesco Castle), the famous Milan fashion share, the vibrant Navigli district, with restaurants, pubs and live music around canals. Do not miss also the opportunity to visit San Siro Stadium, symbol of Milan for soccer fans, and book a classic concert or opera at La Scala (in September 2020, you will have the great opportunity to see either Giuseppe Verdi’s opera La Traviata or Rossini’s  “Il viaggio a Reims”).
