MAPS 2 Conference: Teaching of/with Agent-Based Models in the Social Sciences

April 8-9, 2010

ENS ULM, Paris, France

Attended and reported on by Prof. Bert de Vries

As a sequel to the MAPS 1 Conference in 2009, the Ecole Normale Supérieure organised a follow-up MAPS 2 meeting to evaluate a couple of Ph.D. student projects started during the MAPS 1 meeting and to assess the state of the art about Agent-Based modeling (ABM) tools and standards. The MAPS 1 meeting was an initiative of some young scientists in France, who wanted to promote ABMs and chose NetLogo as platform.
