Agent Based Social Simulation: a Computer Science View


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    A description of the area of Agent Based Social Simulation (ABSS) from a computer scientist’s perspective is presented. We begin by defining ABSS by positioning it with respect to the three research areas that it is related to, i.e., agent-based computing, the social sciences, and computer simulation. We then discuss the role of ABSS and how it may aid cross-fertilisation between these areas.
