27-28 January 2014, AISB Workshop on Modelling Organisational Behaviour and Social Agency, Bournemouth, U.K.

Date: 27-28 January 2014
Location: Bournemouth, U.K.
Deadline: 3 November 2013

The Society for the Study of Articial Intelligence and the Simulation of Behaviour (AISB) is organizing a Workshop on Modelling Organisational Behaviour and Social Agency. The event is hosted by Bournemouth University.

Agent-based models (ABMs) allow to observe the complexity of a system's interactions in the making. This is of interest for the social sciences because of a presumed ontological correspondence of agents with the atoms of social life. An agent can be anything from states to socio-cultural structures, to the environment. This methodological vagueness can be the scrutinised with the theoretical question of what is the basic unit for the analysis of social systems in-between culture, organisation, interactions, and the body. This is of particular relevance for the analysis of organisations, and hence we would like to bring together a group of people that is interested in any aspect of ABM of social agents in organisations.

We invite submissions that seek to examine the applications, structure, how-to, potentials, and philosophical and theoretical underpinnings of ABMs applied to organisational behaviour and social agency. The workshop welcomes contributions from any discipline. Abstracts should be submitted by November 3, 2013.
