'The network of MRPC (Multi-gap Resistive Plate Chambers) telescopes of the Extreme Energy Events experiment (EEE) was designed to study very high energy cosmic rays through detection of secondary cosmic muons in the hadronic shower. To better understand and predict the behavior of such events, a GEANT4-based simulation framework that well reproduces the response of individual telescopes was built. Simulations are crucial to better understand the detectors performance in current setup and how these are affected by the specific installations. This is the first step towards a full simulation framework that includes a realistic generation, now limited to muons, of secondary particles and propagation through the atmosphere of the shower produced by primary rays. 

The current framework can be used to characterize and optimize the array of EEE telescopes, simulating not only the single detectors but also telescope's clusters, providing insight in extreme energy and rare events. 

In this contribution, the EEE simulation framework and future plans will be presented.'
