If you attending the AAG Annual Meeting this year, please feel free to come to our sessions entitled Agent-Based and Cellular Automata Models for Geographical Systems.
LOCATION AND DATE
Saturday, April 13th, from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM in Angeleno, The LA Hotel, Level 2
DESCRIPTION OF THE SESSIONS
The use of Agent-based Modeling (ABM) and Cellular Automata (CA) models within geographical systems are starting to mature as methodologies to explore a wide range of geographical and more broadly social sciences problems facing society. The aim of these sessions is to bring together researchers utilizing agent-based models, CA (and associated methodologies) to discuss topics relating to: theory, technical issues and applications domains of ABM and CA within geographical systems.
Papers will discuss issues relating to:
- Validation, verification and calibration of Agent-based and CA models
- Hybrid modeling approaches (e.g. utilizing Spatial Interaction, Microsimulation, etc.)
- Handling scale and space issues
- Visualization of agent-based models (along with their outputs)
- Ways of representing behavior within models of geographical systems
- Participatory modeling and simulation
- Applications: Ranging from the micro to macro scale
