Report The 5th Summer School of the European Social Simulation Association (ESSA) was held in Barcelona, Spain from September 7-12, 2014. I attended this School to deepen in my knowledge of the method of agent-based modeling and the software platform NetLogo which I am going to use for my dissertation project. During this week in Barcelona I visited numerous lectures conducted by leading researches in the field and worked on my own research project which was presented at the end of the School. I made lots of new interesting international contacts, which certainly will be helpful during my doctoral studies. All in all, it was a highly inspiring experience.
