Slides of my talk at the 2014 ESSA summer school: "Winter is coming! - how to survive the coming critical storm and demonstrate that social simulations work"

 A talk at the 2014 European Social Simulation Association summer school, at UAB in Barcelona 8th sept 2014

The talk covers some of the symptoms of hype in social simulation and argues that it needs to be more careful and rigourous. In particular that the (current) purpose of a simulation needs to be distinguished between theoretical, explanatory or predictive. Each having their own critieria.
