2 May 2011, 1st Workshop on Agent-based Modeling for Policy Engineering (AMPLE 2011), Taipeh, Taiwan

Date: 2 May 2011
Location: Taipeh, Taiwan
Deadline: 30 January 2011

Socio-technical systems are complex adaptive entities that require the engagement of social and technical elements in an environment to reach certain goals. In order to understand, analyze or design such systems, advanced tools are required. One of the major tools for understanding socio-technical systems is agent-based modeling. In recent years, social scientists, including economists and policy makers, have been using agent-based models to tackle their problem domains. Building artificial societies by combining the multi-agent systems view and domain knowledge has become a challenge, because of the complexity involved.

The goal of AMPLE is to connect agent and artificial society research on the one hand, with policy making, institutional analysis and tools like system dynamics and gaming on the other. The combination could have benefits for the further enrichment of agent-based modeling and simulation. By gathering these different perspectives, we aim to explore how agent-research can be used or improved to assist with policy making in the social sciences.

The Programme Committee cordially invites all researchers to submit their papers for presentation. Submission deadline is 30 January 2011.
