In conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Simulation and Modeling Methodologies, Technologies and Applications -
ABMS is a joint event between SIMULTECH and ICINCO.
Venue: Rome, Italy
Conference date: 28 - 31 July, 2012
Polytechnic Institute of SetÃºbal / INSTICC
Agent-based modeling and simulation involves computational models for simulating the actions and interactions of autonomous
agents (both individual or collective entities such as organizations or groups) in order to understand complex phenomena. It may
combine elements of decision theory, distributed systems, computational sociology, multi-agent systems, robotics, and
evolutionary programming. There are many approaches to intelligent software agent development, ranging from reactive agents to
deliberative agents, with different levels of efficiency and effectiveness. Agent-based models have been used since the mid-
1990s to solve a variety of business and technology problems. Examples of applications include supply chain optimization and
logistics, modeling of consumer behavior, social network effects, portfolio management or traffic congestion.
The ABMS special session invites quality papers describing original work including research ideas, case-studies and new findings
on methodological and technological aspects related to agent-based modeling and simulation, in particular papers describing
methods, techniques, recent advances, applications and tools.
