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.
