 Introduction

There are many applications of agent based technology in the mathematical, biological, physical and social scientific communities. Multi-agent systems are very complex applications to program, implement and optimise for large populations of agents. The optimisation of agent interactions and the management of initial data and outputs for large scale simulations are but two areas that need research and development efforts.

  During this one day workshop we aim to explore the state of the art in agent based modelling and simulation from both the computational science aspects and its applications. We will identify issues with current methodologies and implementations and consider future directions appropriate to tackle research into complex dynamical systems using agent based modelling on high performance computers.

Introduction

There are many applications of agent based technology in the mathematical, biological, physical and social scientific communities. Multi-agent systems are very complex applications to program implement and optimise for large populations of agents. The optimisation of agent interactions and the management of initial data and outputs for large scale simulations are but two areas that need research and development efforts.

There are clearly many areas within agent based methods that might benefit from such activity: serial and parallel implementation of agent based applications, verification and validation of agent based models, standards for the exchange of agent based models to name a few.

During this one day workshop we aim to explore the state of the art in agent based modelling and simulation from both the computational science aspects and its applications. We will identify issues with current methodologies and implementations and consider future directions appropriate to tackle research into complex dynamical systems using agent based modelling on high performance computers.
