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.

We returned to the Santa Fe Complex (Website http://sfcomplex.org/ ) on June 26 and 27, 2011 for a spirited and successful Swarmfest 2011.  Topics covered included: applications of agent-based modeling to education, biomedical research, economics and social science, discussions concerning the use of the terms &quot;emergence&quot; and &quot;complexity,&quot; and an update on current and future work on SLAPP (Swarm-like Agent Protocols in Python); a toolkit derived from the original Swarm package with ongoing and active development. We also had the opportunity to hear from 3 of the teams that participated in the 2010-11 New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge (see  http://challenge.nm.org ). Visit the [[Swarmfest 2011 Page]] speakers, titles and abstracts. We hope to be posting presentations in the near future as well.

For the past two years Swarmfest has served as a venue for participants of the New Mexico Supercomputing Challenge (SCC) to present their work, receive feedback and interact with active researchers using agent based modeling. The SCC is a program committed to teaching teams of middle and high schools students how to use powerful computers to analyze, model and solve world problems.  For more information please see http://challenge.nm.org . Agent based modeling has increasingly been used in SCC projects, with two of the top projects from the last two years utilizing agent based modeling. For details of these projects check out &quot;To Kill a Flocking Bird &quot; -  http://challenge.nm.org/archive/09-10/finalreports/70.pdf and &quot;Control and Spread of Wildfires&quot; -  http://challenge.nm.org/archive/09-10/finalreports/99.pdf .

We believe that this is an excellent opportunity to &quot;get them while they are young&quot; and provide an introduction into an exciting and growing area of computational research.

WWW.SWARM.ORG is back!

We have restored the Swarm Development Group wiki following a major server crash several years ago. The wiki's emphasis is now 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 2016: University of Vermont, July 31 – August 3

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 2016 will be at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Vermont, USA. Abstracts are now being accepted. For information click 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

Swarm Software for Agent-based Modeling

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. This area is no longer maintained and we refer interested people to more up-to-date sites such as www.OpenABM.org

There is still information on:

  • Agent-based modeling community resources
  • 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
