Social agent simulation is increasingly recognized as an effective
methodology within the social sciences, particularly a growing range of
policy issues. At the same, the deep and dynamic complexity of the
domain continues to challenge social modelers. Several approaches have
emerged with the potential to address social complexities, generated by
the interaction of social agents. As in past conferences, Agent 2005
will consist of three tracks, with one day reserved for each topic:
* Computational Social Theory (David Sallach,
[log in to unmask])
* Methods, Toolkits & Techniques (Michael North, [log in to unmask])
* Social Simulation Applications (Charles Macal, [log in to unmask])
If you are interested in presenting a paper, please submit an abstract
of at least 500 words to [log in to unmask] We encourage abstract
submissions to indicate under which topic they might best be considered.
If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to submit a paper of
2,500 to 4,000 words in final form. Information on paper format
guidelines, registration, and lodging are available at the conference
web site at agent2005.anl.gov. Papers presented at the conference will
be published in the Agent 2005 Proceedings.
