*Call For Papers:*

Agent-based modeling (ABM) is a maturing method applied across a diverse
range of disciplines and topics. The broad uptake of ABMs is in part due
the need to understand how individual-level attributes, motivations, and
decision-making processes produce regional, sectoral, or population-level
outcomes. Such understanding is critical for informing policy or management
interventions of human-environment interactions to achieve desirable,
aggregate outcomes, such as more sustainable natural resource consumption
and/or reducing vulnerability. The aim of this session is to bring together
researchers using ABM techniques (and associated methodologies) to discuss
topics relating to theory, methodological issues, and novel application
domains related to human-environment interactions.

Examples of salient themes and/or ABM application frontier could include:

·         Implementation and representation of decision-making theories

·         Incorporating social network analysis and representation in
spatial ABMs

·         Integrating ABMs with large-scale, equilibrium-based models
(e.g., integrated assessment models, energy markets)

·         Emergence of cooperation in natural resource management systems

·         Using ABMs to support cross-site comparison and synthesis

·         Visualization of ABM dynamics and results

·         Participatory modeling and simulation

·         ABM Applications: Ranging from the micro to macro scale,
theoretical to empirical

Please e-mail the abstract and keywords with your expression of intent to
Nicholas Magliocca/Tom Evans by *October 17th, 2018*. Please make sure that
your abstract conforms to the AAG guidelines in relation to title, word
limit and key words and as specified at
An abstract should be no more than 250 words that describes the
presentation's purpose, methods, and conclusions as well as to include
