Social and environmental transitions: Simulating the past to understand human behaviour (SimulPast) is a five-year interdisciplinary research project started in January 2011 and funded by the Spanish Ministry for Science and Innovation (CSD2010-00034) within the framework of CONSOLIDER - INGENIO 2010, part of the Spanish National Program for Fundamental Research.
The aim of the project is to develop an innovative and interdisciplinary methodological framework to model and simulate ancient societies and their relationship with environmental transformations. The project includes 11 Research Groups from 7 different Institutions with more than 60 researchers from several fields (archaeology, anthropology, computer science, environmental studies, physics, mathematics and sociology). The leader institution is the IMF-CSIC in Barcelona.
This community site is a wiki space to share, integrate and promote the development of SimulPast.
