ICMAS 98 WORKSHOP ON

Multi-Agent Systems and Agent-Based Simulation

(MABS)

In association with SimSoc

At Agents' World '98 - An associated event of ICMAS'98

July 2 (Thurs) - July 8 (Wed), 1998
Cite des Sciences - La Villette, Paris, France

OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE OF THE MEETING

This workshop will aim to develop stronger links between those working in the social sciences, for whom agent-based simulation has the potential to be a valuable research tool, and those involved with multi-agent simulation, for whom the social sciences can provide useful theories and exemplars. Presentions from both the MAS community, including those working on Artificial Life, biology, evolutionary theory and the study of complex dynamic systems, and the social sciences, including economics, sociology, organization theory, political science, anthropology, decision science, geography, social psychology,archaeology, statistics, etc. will be welcomed.

The workshop will concentrate on agent based simulations. Special attention will be given to the potential of simulations for the development of social theory, the design and implementation of multi-agent systems, the development and implementation of agent theory and architectures for simulation. Work in progress and presentations of research projects are also welcome.
