Résumé

The MAPS group (Multi-Agent modelling applied to Spatial Phenomena) is concerned by the teaching of ABM in social sciences to junior scientists and PhD students. Since 2008 an innovative training format is tested which alternates between intensive collective workshops (conferences on theory and practice of ABM and teamwork) and long period of distance teamwork (using various web technologies). Each trainees group develops its own project model. MAPS2 conference aims at sharing this pedagogic experience and confronts it to other teaching practices as well as to applications of ABM for communication purpose.

Aims and topics of the Conference

A two-day conference dedicated to communication and pedagogy of or with agent-based models in the Social Sciences.

  • Methods concerning the teaching of agent-based modelling and simulation.
  • Methods concerning the use of modelling and or models in a more general teaching purpose (e.g. modelling resource-users interactions to teach renewable resource management,...).
  • Methods for the communication of agent-based models (e.g. methods to describe and
  • communicate around models towards the scientific community, media or the society).
  • The use of agent-based models in a communication purpose (e.g. serious games to sensitize a population to environmental issues).
