Title The design and Implementation of workflows for social simulation
Abstract This paper reports on progress towards the development of an e-research infrastructure for social simulations. We argue that simulation models are increasingly of interest to social scientists across a wide range of disciplines, and of value to both academics and policy-makers. The constituent services of an e-infrastructure for social simulation are described, and examples of social simulation workflows that connect these services into more substantial general purpose tasks shown. The paper discusses the ways in which workflows might themselves be embedded into portals for both spatial analysis and decision support, and reviews some of the outstanding barriers to further development.
