AGENT CULTURES AND ZOMBIELANDS.FIELDS, FICTIONS AND FUTURES OF AGENT-BASED MODELING AND SIMULATION
 

The MECS 2016 An­nu­al Con­fe­rence «Agent Cul­tu­res and Zom­bie­lands» ex­plo­res the epis­te­mo­lo­gi­cal im­pact and the me­dia­tech­no­lo­gi­cal con­di­ti­ons of Agent-ba­sed Mo­de­ling and Si­mu­la­ti­on (ABM). To­day, ABM ran­ges from infrastructure models for pro­duc­tion se­quen­ces, ad­mi­nis­tra­ti­ve pro­ces­ses, wareh­ou­sing, trans­port and traf­fic, and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on net­works, to the simulation of social systems like ani­mal collec­tives, pe­de­stri­an mo­ti­on, ur­ban stu­dies, crowd ma­nage­ment, eva­cua­ti­on stu­dies, epi­de­mio­lo­gy, and fi­nan­ci­al mar­kets, up to in­te­gra­ti­ve Global Scale Agent Models. Agent-ba­sed Mo­de­ling and Si­mu­la­ti­on sha­re a pa­ra­digm of dis­tri­bu­ted con­trol among mul­ti­ple au­to­no­mous and life­li­ke agents. The rise of ABM im­plies a con­cep­ti­on and spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­on of (ar­ti­fi­ci­al) so­cia­li­ty.

The MECS 2016 An­nu­al Con­fe­rence «Agent Cul­tu­res and Zom­bie­lands» will ex­ami­ne this par­ti­cu­lar di­men­si­on of so­cia­li­ty in ABM from a trans­di­sci­pli­na­ry per­spec­tive, con­vey­ing scho­lars from com­pu­ter sci­ence, so­ci­al sci­ence, me­dia stu­dies, and ex­perts from va­rious fiel­ds of ap­p­li­ca­ti­on. Ge­ne­ral ques­ti­ons touch on the ve­ri­si­mi­li­tu­de of ›life­li­ke‹ be­ha­vi­or. They ask about the con­cep­tu­al in­gre­dients of the so­cia­li­ty in so­ci­al si­mu­la­ti­ons. And they in­qui­re how so­ci­al si­mu­la­ti­ons, vice ver­sa, might have im­p­regna­ted so­cio­logi­cal and po­li­ti­cal no­ti­ons of ›the so­ci­al‹.
