SwarmFest 2015

Item posted by Scott Christley <schristley> on Sun 08 Mar 2015 03:03:42 AM UTC.

19th Annual SwarmFest Conference
July 10 - 12, 2015
University of South Carolina
Columbia, SC 29208 USA

Call for Abstracts:
SwarmFest is the annual meeting of the Swarm Development Group (SDG), and one of the oldest communities involved in the development and propagation of agent-based modeling. SwarmFest has traditionally involved a mix of both tool-users and tool-developers, drawn from many domains of expertise. These have included, in the past, computer scientists, software engineers, biomedical researchers, ecologists, economists, political scientists, social scientists, resource management specialists and evolutionary biologists. SwarmFest represents a low-key environment for researchers to explore new ideas and approaches, and benefit from a multi-disciplinary environment.

​We also encourage the sharing of our experiences with attempting to gain acceptance of ABM within our own research communities, and discuss strategies where cross-domain examples/analogies can aid in that process. We will also try to identify future avenues for ABM research, including the “next” generation of ABM tools, platforms and applications.

This year, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Policy Design with Agent-based Models
​Agent-based models for simulation & training
Dynamic Human behavior ABMs
Human factors simulations
Digital humanities
Agent-based Models and Simulators of the Econo​​my
Aggregation and Emergent Macroeconomics
General Equilibrium Model with Heterogeneous Agents
Economic Development, Technological Change and Growth
Socio-economic and Financial Networks
Agent-based modeling methodology
Agent ontologies
Model replication, verification & validation
Participatory & Human-in-the-Loop simulations
Simulation software & programming computational frameworks
Agent-based computational economics & finance
Conflict resolution & cooperation
Coupled human-natural systems
Diffusion of innovations
Dynamics of trust, social norm, structures, reputation & opinion
Epidemiology & pharmacoeconomics
Group decisions & collective behaviors
Market design, mechanism design & auctions
Social networks and their dynamics
