Welcome To MABS 2009

MABS 2009 is the tenth edition of the International Workshop on Multi-Agent Based Simulation, which will be hosted at AAMAS 2009, the eighth International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, that is going to take place in Budapest, Hungary, on May 10-15, 2009.


Multi-Agent Based Simulation (MABS) is an inter-disciplinary area born at the intersection between the multi-agent systems (MAS) community and the agent-based social simulation (ABSS) community. The workshop aims to bring together scholars interested in agent-based systems and computational models of real-world societies, at different levels of organization, in order to create a forum for dialogue and research across disciplines.
