We are pleased to announce the establishment of the new Computational Social Science Society (called CSSS, or “C-triple-S”), officially registered in Washington DC on 16 December, 2009, as a 501 (c)(3) scientific non-profit professional organization to serve members in our field of computational social science. This new organization originated at the last meeting of NAACSOS, when the gathered members unanimously moved to establish the new CSSS and elect officers to provide for continuity of leadership and build on NAACSOS’ best past accomplishments.
