Security-oriented infrastructures for social simulation

By J. Watt, S. McCafferty and R.O. Sinnott


The JISC-funded National e-Infrastructure for Social Simulation (NeISS) project aims to develop\ud and provide new services to social scientists and public/private sector policymakers interested in\ud “what-if” questions that have an impact upon society and can be tackled through social simulation. For\ud the first what-if question, a traffic simulation modelling how congestion will affect routes within a city\ud or region projected across a time-span of decades has been identified. This paper describes the work\ud that has been done in implementing a secure, user-oriented environment that provides seamless access\ud to relevant nationally significant data sets such as the 2001 Census and demographic transition\ud statistics from the British Household Panel Survey (BHPS) , and a Population Reconstruction Model\ud (PRM) simulator, which simulates a population of individuals or households based upon these data\ud sets
