11-13 December 2014, Agent-based modeling in philosophy, Munich, Germany

Date: 11-13 December 2014
Location: Munich, Germany
Deadline: 1 June 2014

In the past two decades, agent-based models (ABMs) have become ubiquitous in philosophy and various sciences. In contrast with classical economic models or population-level models in biology, ABMs are praised for their lack of assumptions and their flexibility. Nonetheless, many of the methodological and epistemological questions raised by ABMs have yet to be fully articulated and answered. This conference aims to bring together an interdisciplinary group of researchers aimed at understanding the foundations of agent-based modeling and how the practice can inform and be informed by philosophy.
