CFP: Multi-Agent-Based Simulation 2013


MABS’13 – The Fourteenth International Workshop on Multi-Agent-Based Simulation Multi-Agent Simulation In conjunction with AAMAS 2013, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA 6th-10th May 2013

Submission deadline: February 3, 2013 For more information: https://sites.google.com/site/mabsworkshop/

Aims and scope. The meeting of researchers from MAS engineering and the social/economic/organizational sciences is extensively recognized for its role in cross-fertilization, and has undoubtedly been an important source of inspiration for the body of knowledge that has been produced in the MAS area. Multi-Agent Based Simulation (MABS) is a vibrant inter-disciplinary area which brings together researchers within the agent-based social simulation community (ABSS) and the Multiagent Systems community (MAS).

The range of technical issues that MABS has dealt with and continues to deal with is diverse and extensive and includes:

Simulation methodologies: – standards for MABS – methodologies and simulation languages for MABS – simulation platforms and tools for MABS – visualization and analytic tools – approaches for large-scale simulations – scalability and robustness in MABS

Simulation of social and economic behavior: – formal and agent models of social behavior – cognitive modeling and social simulation – game theory and simulation – social structure: social networks and simulating organizations – simulating social complexity (e.g. structures and norms, social order, emergence of cooperation and coordinated action, self-organization, the micro-macro link)

Applications: – MABS in environmental modeling – agent-based experimental economics – participative-based simulation – MABS and games

MABS WORKSHOP SERIES The workshop is a continuation of the International Workshop series on Multi-Agent-Based Simulation (MABS). Further details of the previous workshops can be found at http://www.pcs.usp.br/~mabs/.

Important Dates February 3, 2013 – Deadline for paper submission. March 1, 2013 – Acceptance or rejection notification is sent to authors. March 10, 2013 – Deadline for authors sending their revised contribution, according to reviewers’ remarks. May 6-57, 2013 – MABS 2013 workshop takes place.

About the Agent-Based Virutal Labs (ABVLs) blog

Welcome to the Agent-Based Virtual Labs blog!Landscape_fig

This blog will cover issues relating broadly to the social, economic, and cultural interactions that are  changing the planet’s surface and climate. In particular, these issues will be explored with posts relating to agent-based modeling (ABM), and how ABMs can be used as virtual laboratories to ask questions about peoples’ motivations for observed behaviors that would be impossible to ask any other way. Along the way, topics informing the creation, use, and testing of ABMs will be included, as well as my areas of application of ABVLs such as land-use change, livelihoods in developing countries, and sustainability.

This blog will also be a hub of information for those interested in ABMs or my subject areas of interest. Following the navigation menu will lead you to collections of links for learning and teaching resources, other ABVLs-relevant blogs, and my research topics. Also, at regular intervals, posts will appear that contain an annotated list of links dedicated to topics ‘trending’ in the ABVLs world.

I hope you enjoy and please drop me a line!
