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