Description: The workshop will consist of researchers from the Multiagent Systems community (MAS) of engineering and the social/economic/organizational sciences. This workshop is extensively recognized for its role in cross-fertilization and has been an important source of inspiration for the body of knowledge that has been produced in the area of MAS. Multi-Agent Based Simulation (MABS) is a vibrant inter-disciplinary area which brings together researchers within the agent-based social simulation community (ABSS) and MAS.
The focus of ABSS is on simulating and organization social behaviours in order to understand real social systems via the development and testing of new concepts. The focus of MAS is on the solution of hard engineering problems related to the construction, deployment and efficient operation of multiagent systems. The range of technical issues that MABS has dealt with, and continues to deal with, is quite diverse and extensive.
