Society & Cognition Unit along with University Computational Center of University of Białystok are pleased to invite you to the conference on modelling social phenomena.

Computer-based methodologies have recently been applied with success to research questions within the social sciences. The aim of this conference is to look at some recent research that uses this methodology and to develop links between the different scientific communities involved.
