Enhancing Complex Social Simulations with Automata Systems

Call for Papers

This session aims to bring together researchers to report on progress in diverse types of automata systems in social simulation. We encourage the submission of theoretical, experimental, methodological and application papers related to Cellular Automata (CA) and Agent-Based Modelling (ABM). Papers may include, but are not limited to:

Artificial social systems.
Agents and social networks.
Modelling complexity in social simulations.
Large scale social simulation.
Social behaviour, social actions and interactions.
Models of competition, cooperation and negotiation.
Multi-agent evolution: adaptation and learning.
Hybrid automata models.
Validation and verification of simulation results and simulation systems.
Novel applications of automata systems in ecology and economics.
Utilisation of automata systems in disaster management.

Details of online submission can be found at:


We have secured the agreement of the Applied Spatial Analysis and Policy Journal for a SPECIAL ISSUE based on the conference papers.
