CALL FOR PAPERS

THE FIRST LAKE ARROWHEAD CONFERENCE on COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE
AGENT-BASED MODELING in the SOCIAL SCIENCES
Thursday, May 9th to Sunday, May 12th, 2002.

The UCLA Conference Center is located at Lake Arrowhead, a Southern
California facility situated at the 5000 elevation in the Beautiful San
Bernardino mountains.
It is about a two-hour drive from the Los Angeles International Airport. Map

An opportunity to advance agent modeling in the social sciences.

We invite social scientists who employ computational ideas and methods in
their research and teaching to join us for the first annual Lake Arrowhead
Conference on agent modeling.

The conference will serve as a forum for sharing the most recent
theoretical applications and methodological advances on agent modeling
throughout the social sciences (e.g., Anthropology, Communication Studies,
Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Sociology, Urban
Planning) and among social scientists in professional schools (e.g.,
Business, Education, International Relations, Public Health, Public Policy,
Social Welfare) and in the public and private sectors.

We are planning for a mix of plenary sessions as well as concurrent
sessions on computational modeling issues, discipline-based research, and
special topics to be proposed. We invite individual paper submissions and
proposals for sessions (90 minutes each).

WE INVITE THE FOLLOWING PAPER & SESSION TOPICS

Agent Modeling Methodologies
Modeling Approaches - Evolutionary Computation, Cellular Automata, Genetic
Algorithms, Neural Nets, Simulated Annealing
Model Design Issues - Population Complexity, Agent Complexity, Spatial
Complexity)
Robustness and Validity Issues
Intersections with Mathematics, Human Experiments, Social Epistemology
Artificial Societies and Artificial Cultures
Physical and Virtual Robot Societies and Cultures
Complexity/Chaos Theory
Emergent Social Structure
Social Network Dynamics
Spatial Analysis
Game Theory
Knowledge, Distributed Intelligence and Distributed Cognition
Governance, Centralization, Decentralization
Agent-Related Systems Dynamics
Public and Private Sector Applications
Topics of Your Choice
We encourage papers at the cutting-edge of multi-agent modeling that are
relevant to the social science community.

Signed, the Co-Directors of the UCLA Center for Computational Social Science:

Phil Bonacich
Nicholas Gessler
Susanne Lohmann
Bill McKelvey
Dwight Read
