About this product
- DescriptionThe book presents a peer-reviewed collection of papers presented during the 10th issue of the Artificial Ecomics conference, addressing a variety of issues related to macroecomics, industrial organization, networks, management and finance, as well as purely methodological issues. The field of artificial ecomics covers a broad range of methodologies relying on computer simulations in order to model and study the complexity of ecomic and social phemena. The grounding principle of artificial ecomics is the analysis of aggregate properties of simulated systems populated by interacting adaptive agents that are equipped with heterogeneous individual behavioral rules. These macroscopic properties are neither foreseen r intended by the artificial agents but generated collectively by them. They are emerging characteristics of such artificially simulated systems.
- Author BiographyFre de ric Amblard was awarded a PhD degree (agent-based social simulation) in 2003 from the University Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand. He then spend one year as a post-doc at the ENS-Ulm. In 2004, he became associate professor in Computer Science at the University Toulouse 1 Capitole and joined the IRIT-SMAC team. He has been implied in several European projects (FP6 IMAGES, FP7 COSIN, FP7 QLectives) and ANR projects (MAGeo, COSMAGEMS) and currently participates in the coordination of the MAELIA project, dedicated to the multi-agent simulation for the management of water resources. He coordinated several industrial projects with major actors (EDF R&D, France Te le com R&D). In 2013 he received an award for scientific excellence (PES). Francesc Josep Miguel holds a PhD in Sociology from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB) and a University Specialist Degree in Sociology of Consumption from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Miguel Quesada is an Associate Professor at UAB responsible for courses in Methodology for the Social Sciences, Sociology of Consumption and Applied Statistics for Marketing Analysis. He has conducted research in the fields of sociology of consumption, social indicators in relation to the situation of women in contemporary society, and the analysis of school-to-work transitions. At present he mainly works in the domain of computational sociology - an applied branch of artificial intelligence that merges social science and computer simulation techniques to model complex policy issues and societal dynamics - and, as GSADI member and as Director of the Laboratory for Socio-Historical Dynamics Simulation (LSDS) he is involved in several projects about the use of agent-based social simulation for the modelling of social networks dynamics and evolution of social behavior. Adrien Blanchet became Associate Professor at the GREMAQ in 2008. He earned a PhD degree in 2005 from the University Paris Dauphine. With a background in mathematical physics, Adrien focused at the end of his PhD degree on models coming from Biology. From his recruitment at the GREMAQ in 2008, he worked on the applications of partial differential equations in Economics. In 2009 he received an award for scientific excellence (PES) as well as an Outstanding Viae Award of the Toulouse School of Economics (TSE) in 2010. Benoit Gaudou was awarded a PhD degree in Artificial Intelligence in 2008 from the Toulouse University. In 2010, he became Associate Professor at the University Toulouse 1 Capitole and joined the IRIT-SMAC research team. His research topics are the agent-based modeling and simulation of social environmental systems including complex agents.
