We are very happy to announce that all the invited speakers of the SSC2020 have agreed on giving their talks online as part of the SSW2020 calendar. More detail soon.

Anima Anandkumar (Caltech Computing + Mathematical Science Department, Pasadena, CA, USA)

The youngest named chair professor at Caltech, Anima Anandkumar teaches Foundations of Machine Learning and is a Director of Machine Learning Research at NVIDIA. She has pioneered the development of tensor algorithms for processing multidimensional and multimodal data, and for achieving massive parallelism in large-scale AI applications. Recently, she advocated the use of computer simulations to train algorithms on extreme, rare and complex events, which are dramatically under-represented in any data source. She is interested in a better integration of big data and computer simulation with relevant implications for understanding human behaviour.

Giulia Andrighetto (Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies, National Research Council, Italy)

Giulia Andrighetto is researcher at the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies of the National Research Council, Rome, Italy and at Mälardalen University, Västerås, Sweden. Her research examines the nature and dynamics of social norms through behavioural experiments and agent-based modelling. In 2013, she was awarded the Ricercat@mente Prize for the best under 35 italian researcher in the field of social sciences & humanities by the National Research Council and the Accademia dei Lincei. In 2016, she was awarded a Wallenberg Academy Fellowship by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, Sweden.

Maja Schlüter (Stockholm Resilience Centre, Sweden)

Maja Schlüter is associate professor at the Stockholm Resilience Centre in Sweden. She focusses on social-ecological interactions and mechanisms that explain system resilience by using agent-based modelling to identify patterns across cases. She has been awarded an ERC starting grant SES-LINK (2012-2017) and a consolidator grant MuSES (2017-2022).

Petra Ahrweiler (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany)

Petra Ahrweiler is Full Professor of Sociology of Technology and Innovation, Social Simulation at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz in Germany. She is interested in inter-organizational networks and the complex relationship between technological innovation and society. She has used agent-based modelling as a key method for policy modelling and assessment.
