Demographic agent-based simulation of gambians immigrants in Spain / Montañola-Sales, Cristina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Departament d'Estadística i Investigació Operativa (DEIO)) ; Casanovas Garcia, Josep (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Departament d'Estadística i Investigació Operativa (DEIO)) ; Kaplan-Marcusán, Adriana (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Changes in our society have created a challenge for policymakers, who confront a need of tools to evaluate the possible effects of their policies. Agent-based modelling and simulation is a promising methodology which can be used in the study of population dynamics. [...]

Modeling population dynamics of online communities / Baggio, Jacopo (Arizona State University. School of Human Evolution and Social Change) ; Manning, Miles (Arizona State University. School of Human Evolution and Social Change) ; Wu, Lingfei (Arizona State University. School of Human Evolution and Social Change) ; Janssen, Marco A. (Arizona State University. School of Human Evolution and Social Change)
Online communities are more dynamic in terms of composition compared to traditional physical communities. This can affect the conditions for cooperation. We discuss empirical results from online communities and extend the evolution of firms model of Axtell to discover the conditions of cooperation in groups.

Modelling interactions and feedback mechanisms in land use systems / Chen, Yang (Wageningen University) ; Ligtenberg, Arend (Wageningen University) ; Bakker, Martha (Wageningen University) ; Bregt, Arnold (Wageningen University)
Land use change (LUC) is often a complex process. In such a process land use systems can show non-linear behaviours caused by mechanisms such as interactions between agents and feedbacks from higher system level. [...]

Knowledge transfer dynamics : how to model knowledge in the first place? / Guechtouli, Widad IPAG Busines School (Paris)
In this paper, we study both processes of direct and indirect knowledge transfer, from a modelling perspective, using agent-based models. In fact, there are several ways to model knowledge. We choose to study three different representations, and try to determine which one allows to better capture the dynamics of knowledge diffusion within a social network. [...]

Social contagion and homophily within romantic network / Linares, Francisco (Universidad de La Laguna)
This paper presents an agent based simulation model which attempts to show how the diffusion of a cultural-trait can be affected by an uneven distribution of influence-capacity among individuals. For the sake of concretion the model represents a population of teenagers who attempt to find a romantic relationship looking for a partner within their friendship ties. [...]

Modelling cooperation in Bali irrigation / Wijermans, Nanda (Stockholm University) ; Schlüter, Maja (Stockholm University)
In social-ecological systems research the use of natural resources is typically studied on either a conceptual (theory) or a detailed level (case studies). We use agent-based modelling to take an approach that is situated in between. [...]

Modelling cultural shift : Application to language decline and extinction / Isern, Neus (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Prehistòria. Laboratori d’Arqueologia Quantitativa) ; Fort, Joaquim (Universitat de Girona. Departamanent de Física)
Cultural shift is present in many aspects of human history. Here we present a model developed to study the particular case of language shift when a minority language is in competition with another language, which is perceived by the population as being socially and economically more advantageous (Isern and Fort, J.

The emergence of institutions for the management of the commons / Ghorbani, Amineh (Delft University of Technology) ; Bravo, Giangiacomo (Linnaeus University)
In this paper we present an abstract replication of institutional emergence patterns observed in common pool resource (CPR) problems. We used the ADICO grammar of institutions as the basic structure to model both agents’ strategies and institutions. [...]

Bounded confidence, radical groups, and charismatic leaders / Hegselmann, Rainer (Bayreuth University)
By few simple extensions it is possible to model radical groups, charismatic leaders and processes of radicalization in the bounded confidence framework. In the resulting model we get a lot of surprising (non-)monotonicities. [...]

Generic bottom-up building-energy models for developing regional energy transition scenarios / Knoeri, Christof (University of Leeds) ; Goetz, Alessandra (University of Munich) ; Binder, Claudia R. (University of Munich)
Energy demand from buildings has the largest single share of the global final energy demand, but offers massive energy saving potentials through state-of-the-art technologies and behavioural changes. [...]
