Welcome to the Survey of research practices of Complex Systems and Social Simulation.
This survey is framed in my PhD study in sociology that I am currently conducting at the University of Toulouse1-Capitole in France and at the University of Buenos Aires in Argentina, under the direction of Professors Dr. Pascal Roggero and Dr. Juan Ignacio Piovani. The research is funded by the National Council of Scientific and Technical Research of Argentina.
Your opinion will contribute to identify key problems, challenges and research trends structuring the field of complex systems and social simulation.
This survey has been designed on the basis of a qualitative analysis of 53 interviews that I have conducted with scholars of seven countries: Argentina, Spain, France, Holland, England, Italy and Venezuela. This survey is being diffused in Europe, in Asia and in North and South America thanks to the support of a group of institutions of the field.
Your answers are completely anonymous and data privacy is absolutely guaranteed. Gathered data will be only used for academic purposes and the results of the survey will be communicated. The survey has an estimated length of 20-30 minutes.
I would really appreciate your willingness, disposition and effort to answer the whole survey since your opinion will permit to elaborate a reflexivity of this community about itself.
