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.

==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.

Swarm-Support has been disabled for the indefinite future. We've left the Mailman page, including the archives up for spelunking. But new subscriptions and posts have been disabled.

The SDG has donated $10,000 to Northwestern University's Center for Connected Learning and Computer-Based Modeling (CCL) to support completion and distribution of the NetLogo "Time" extension, which adds discrete event simulation support to NetLogo.

2020-06-08: Reconstituted Board of Directors

The SDG took a break from organizing SwarmFest. A new board has been elected and is planning for the future. Please watch this space for any updates.

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 This area is no longer maintained and we refer interested people to more up-to-date sites such as www.OpenABM.org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