"Agent-Based Modeling of Human-Environment Interactions"
Nicholas Magliocca, Department of Geography, University of Alabama
Tom Evans, School of Geography and Development, University of Arizona
Call For Abstracts:
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:
Please e-mail the abstract and keywords with your expression of intent to Nicholas Magliocca (email@example.com) or Tom Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 17, 2018.
