Social scientists, qualitative data, and agent-based modeling / Seidl, Roman (ETH Zurich. Natural and Social Science Interface (NSSI))
Empirical data obtained with social science methods can be useful for informing agent-based models, for instance, to fix the profile of heterogeneous agents or to specify behavioral rules. For the latter in particular, qualitative methods that investigate the details of individual decision processes are an option. [...]

Technology development and political and economic power: evolution of global inequality / Inoue, Hiroko (UC-Riverside) ; Chase-Dunn, Christopher (UC-Riverside)
Abstract Global inequality, in combination with various global problems, has been one of the most pressing concerns of today’s world. There are numerous models that explain the development of technology, political and economic power concentration, and resulting social inequality within a single society or region. [...]

Agent-based modelling of agricultural water abstraction in response to climate change and policies: In East Anglia, UK / Swinscoe, T.H.A. (University of Leeds) ; Knoeri, C. (University of Leeds) ; Fleskens, L. (University of Leeds) ; Barrett, J. (University of Leeds)
Freshwater is a vital natural resource for multiple sectors. However, freshwater available for abstraction in the UK and in particular agricultural irrigation in East Anglia is becoming increasingly variable and uncertain due to climate and policy changes, and increase in demand. [...]

The Internet as a catalyst for social movements: a simulation of social media mechanisms in the context of the arab spring and occupy movements / Wiersma, Wybo (University of Oxford)
Over the last few years protest movements such as the Arab Spring and Occupy, have cascaded through much of the world. All of these were regularly portrayed as ’Internet Revolutions’ in the media, but among sociologists there is strong doubt about whether they actually could have been accelerated by the communicative capabilities of the Internet.

Innovation, demand, and finance in an agent based-stock flow consistent model / Caiani, Alessandro (Università politecnica delle Marche) ; Caverzas, Eugenio (Università politecnica delle Marche i) ; Godin, Antoine (University of Limerick) ; Riccetti, Luca (Sapienza University of Rome) ; Russo, Alberto (Università politecnica delle Marche) ; Gallegati, Mauro (Università politecnica delle Marche) ; Kinsella, Stephen (University of Limerick) ; Stiglitz, Joseph (Columbia University)
We present an agent based stock flow consistent macroeconomic model with heterogeneous agents interacting through a decentralized matching process across multiple markets with multiple assets. The model is consistent across both the micro and macroeconomic levels, by providing a detailed, comprehensive, and rigorous accounting of real and financial flows and stocks. [...]

Investigating opinion dynamics using the FreqNet model / Boerma, Susan (University of Groningen) ; Albers, Casper (University of Groningen) ; Jager, Wander (University of Groningen)
Human life is based on social interactions. These interactions are dictated by the attitudes and beliefs people have. Personal attitudes and beliefs are not constant over time but are influenced on an individual level. [...]
