GSDP Agent-based modeling

08.09.2011, Paris, France

Agent-based models exhibit a variety of structures, interactions, behavioral assumptions and use different software platforms and/or programming languages. Though it underlines a large range of potential applications for agent-based models, this variety also suggests a possible lack of common structures in the field which could hamper the communication, the comparison and the evaluation of such models. In order to prevent these failures and to foster the development of future research, it is thought useful to gather leading actors in the field so as to define a set of structuring guidelines. Therefore, the workshop will bring together economists and complex scientists with an expertise in agent-based modeling with the aim of developing standards for the description, the specification and the validation of agent-based models and to identify promising avenues for formal analysis of such models.
