In this article, we present roadmaps and research issues pertaining to multiagent social simulation to illustrate the directions of technological achievements in that domain. Compared with physical simulation, social simulation is still in the phase of establishing simulation models. We focus on four issues, namely "undetermined model", "awareness effects", "obscure boundary", and "incomplete data", and consider ways to overcome these issues using the massive computational power of

Moreover, we investigate research issues on the application side and categorize possible future works on multiagent social simulations.
