Topic of the Workshop
[Download the initial call: (Call-ABS2.pdf)]

Agent Based Models are privileged tools in many different disciplines, when it comes to the exploration of complex systems. Indeed, they allow to model processes from the bottom-up and to simulate the behaviour of a large variety of phenomena, ranging from physical, biological, social, cultural and cognitive domains.

In some specific communities, including geography, planning, architecture, archaeology, sociology, spatial economics, computer sciences, ecology, to name but a few, some specific models have also been imagined, designed and tested, which allow exploring complex spatial systems.

In that perspective, spatially explicit agent based models are the focus of this international workshop, organised as a joint event between the Paris-Île de France Complex Systems Institute (ISC-PIF) and the European Network “Spatial Simulation for the Social Sciences” (S4), and especially its SIMBAAD working group: “Simulation Based of Agents to Aid Decision”.

Contributions dealing with (but not limited to) the following fields of spatially explicit ABM are encouraged:

•    Formalising spatial structures and processes in agent based models
•    Coupling environmental and social processes
•    Formalising incomplete information and/or bounded rationality in space
•    Modelling perception of space by agents
•    Identifying and comparing emerging spatial patterns

•    Feeding and calibration of agent models with heterogeneous and multi-sources data
•    Verification and validation of individual and global behaviour
•    Real-time coupling between empirical data and model
•    Parallelisation and grid computing for large spatial models, including distributed problems: distributed clocks, synchronisation, load-sharing.

•    Re-interpreting classic macroscopic models using an ABM approach
•    Spatial agent based models for exploration, optimisation, decision support
