This year we will continue to examine the range of systems being modeled with ABM, with the possibility of providing some guidance as to the suitability of the various types of agent-based models for particular types of modeling goals. We also encourage the sharing of our experiences with attempting to gain acceptance of ABM within our own research communities, and discuss strategies where cross-domain examples/analogies can aid in that process. We will also try to identify future avenues for ABM research, including the "next" generation of ABM tools, platforms and application.

Revision as of 17:45, 30 November 2015

Consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.

WWW.SWARM.ORG is back!

We have just restored the Swarm Development Group wiki (October 2015), following a major server crash several years ago. We will be gradually cleaning up the site. Its emphasis will be on supporting Swarm software and SDG's annual SwarmFest. We will no longer attempt to provide current information on agent-based modeling in general, or on modeling software other than Swarm.

Swarmfest

Swamfest is the annual meeting of the Swarm Development Group (SDG), and one of the oldest communities involved in the development and propagation of agent-based modeling. Swarmfest has traditionally involved a mix of both tool-users and tool-developers, drawn from many domains of expertise. These have included, in the past, computer scientists, software engineers, biomedical researchers, ecologists, economists, political scientists, social scientists, resource management specialists and evolutionary biologists. Swarmfest represents a low-key environment for researchers to explore new ideas and approaches, and benefit from a multi-disciplinary environment.

SwarmFest 2015 was held at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, South Carolina, USA. For information see: [[1]]

Announcements for future fests should appear here.

New version of Objective-C Swarm for Windows

There is a new binary (and source) release of Swarm that works with MinGW, a compiler that produces Windows executables. Advantages of this new way to use Swarm in Windows:

  • Windows executables can be launched directly from Windows, without needing to launch from inside a Unix-like environment.
  • Swarm models can be distributed for use on any Windows computer, without requiring Swarm or MinGW to be installed.
  • Faster execution than Cygwin Swarm.

See Swarm_and_MinGW

Be a Swarm Development Group Member!

Membership in SDG is a way to support our efforts to maintain and improve Swarm, and to support agent-based modeling. We just updated our membership page with new membership categories and procedures. Take a look to see what you can do. Template:Posted

Agent- and Individual-based Modeling Resources

  • Resources for agent-based modeling. This area of the wiki is for information on agent-based modeling in general. There are sub-areas for:
    • Agent-based modeling community resources, including SwarmFest, our annual modeling conference
    • Software (information on alternative platforms; learning materials; template models; integrated development environments)
    • "How and why to do agent-based modeling": techniques and theory
    • Resources specific to different scientific domains
  • modelling@swarm.org: The email community of agent-based modelers. This email list discusses topics of general interest to agent-based modelers. More information and signup here.
