     International Workshop on Agent Based
         Modeling and Simulation

    Chairs: Stefania Bandini, Paolo Petta and Giuseppe Vizzari

A Symposium of the 18th European Meeting on Cybernetic Science and
     Systems Research - April 18-21 - University of Vienna

The notions of agents and multi-agent systems have been widely
adopted for the modelling of complex systems in most various
contexts, ranging from social sciences, to urban modelling and
planning, biology, logistics and production, and many other more.
However the concepts behind the term agent are often quite different,
as well as the goals of the modelling and simulation activities. This
leads to different approaches, methodologies and developed
computational systems supporting simulation of the modeled realities.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together experiences related to
agent based modelling and simulation in different contexts and thus
to try to identify common goals and research issues, and to possibly
define common methodologies and requirements for computational
supports to agent based modelling and simulation.

Topics of interest
We invite papers on all aspects relating to agent based modeling and
simulation, with particular attention to interdisciplinary
experiences. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the

- actual MAS-based simulation experiences
- agent-based modeling methodologies
- generic or domain specific MAS models for simulation
- methodologies for the analysis of MAS-based simulation results
- multi-agent models for emergent phenomena and self-organization
- platforms for agent-based modeling and simulation
- verification and validation of MAS-based simulations

Important dates:

- Deadline for submission (extended!):     November 18, 2005
- Notification of acceptance/rejection:    December 16, 2005
- Final papers:                            January 30, 2006

After the workshop, extended versions of selected accepted contributions
will be included in a special issue of an international journal.
