Title The elements of a computational infrastructure for social simulation 123454
Abstract The applications of simulation modelling in social science domains are varied and increasingly widespread. The effective deployment of simulation models depends on access to diverse data sets, the use of analysis capabilities, the ability to visualise model outcomes, and to capture, share and re- use simulations as evidence in research and policy-making. We describe three applications of e-social science which promote social simulation modelling, data management and visualisation. An example is outlined in which the three components are brought together in a transport planning context. We discuss opportunities and benefits for the combination of these and other components into an e- infrastructure for social simulation, and review recent progress towards the establishment of such an infrastructure.
