21st IEEE/ACM DS-RT 2017

Special Session on Agent-based Modeling and Simulation


Submission Deadline: May 26th, 2017
Notification Date: June 26th, 2017

Session Chair

Dr. Robson E. De Grande
University of Ottawa, Canada

Goals of the Session

This special session focuses on general aspects and special properties for agent-based modeling and simulations that allows them to be applied on several scientific domains, such as sociology, physics, chemistry, biology, ecology, and economy. The session is intended to bring together researchers and practitioners, so they can present the current status of their work and discuss the challenges they face in developing solutions and applications for agent-based simulations. Consequently, the design of these simulations aims not only to social contexts but also to more technical domains, which involves highly complex interactive systems.

List of Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Theoretical and Mathematical modeling
  • Simulation Performance and Scalability
  • Optimization of Complex Systems
  • Applications such as on Agent-based Social Simulation, Traffic Congestion, Vehicular Area Networks, Epidemiology, Smart Buildings, and Dynamic and Complex Systems
