Agent-Based Modeling

Agent-Directed Simulation Symposium (ADS’10) – The purpose of the ADS symposium is to facilitate dissemination of the most recent advancements in the theory, methodology, application, and toolkits of agent-directed simulation. Agent-directed simulation is comprehensive in the integration of agent and simulation technologies, by including models that use agents to develop domain-specific simulations, i.e., agent simulation (this is often referred to as agent-based simulation -when other two important aspects are not considered), and by also including the use of agent technology to develop simulation techniques and toolkits that are subsequently applied, either with or without agents.

Social Sciences

NYC Computational Economics & Complexity WorkshopThe NYC Computational Economics & Complexity Workshop is a regularly meeting workshop for faculty and graduate students in the New York City area interested in agent-based, heterogeneous agent, computational economics and related areas. The meetings are held at New School University. The workshop is an opportunity for researchers to present work in any stage of development in order to get feedback and discuss ideas and topics. If you would like to be added to the email contact list, email Jason Barr.  February 25 – February 27, 2011, New York City, Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers.

2010 Computational Social Science Society Conference – Over the past decade simulating social processes has achieved some level of credibility — and yet progress in this area is stifled because of the lack of agreement on several critical core features. The new Computational Social Science Society was formed to provide scientists with the opportunity to interact and support the growth of this methodology. The 2010 conference will provide a forum for presenting models and discussing present research and future directions.
