Social Simulation of Group Decision Making and Negotiation

Social scientists have been using widely computer simulation to understand phenomena such as the emergence of complex behaviors from the 1990s. Several topics have been explored with particular interest on the exploration and the understanding of social processes. In particular the multi-agent approach allows to us to understand and analyze the behavior of groups of agents.

The goal of SoSiGroN stream is to bring together the community of researchers using social simulation and multi-agent system models to analyze and support group decision making and aid negotiation processes. We will exchange ideas about how to embrace decision processes in social simulation models - both as the input and the output of the models.

We invite researchers interested in analyzing complex decision scenarios and conflict modelling with the utilization of multi-agent simulation. We particularly invite proposals presenting on-going developments in the broad spectrum of decision making and negotiation process analysis.

The objectives of the stream are the following:

  • To discuss how the social simulation approach can help to model group decision making and negotiation processes
  • To help understand how preferences of individual decision makers lead to global equilibria
  • To explore how multi-agent simulation models can be utilized to model multi-lateral negotiation processes

Topics of interest include social simulation models, methodologies, approaches and frameworks:

  • Multi-agent simulation models of decision making processes
  • Analysis of decision interdependence
  • Modelling decision processes in social networks
  • Modelling how local preferences lead to stable global equilibria
  • Economic policy modelling that takes into consideration individual preferences of citizens
  • Simulation models of bi- and multi-lateral negotiation processes
  • Decision making in the social context
  • Tacit negotiation and social dilemmas
