How to Do Agent-Based Modeling on Supercomputers

SESSION: S09: How to Do Agent-Based Modeling on Supercomputers

EVENT TYPE: Tutorial

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM

Presenter(s):Michael J. North, Nicholson Collier


In the last decade, agent-based modeling and simulation (ABMS) has been successfully applied to a variety of domains, demonstrating the potential of this technique to advance operations research, social science, physical science, engineering, and policy analysis. However, realizing the full potential of agent-based modeling to find breakthrough research results requires far greater computing capability than is available through current desktop and small cluster tools. The Repast Simphony for C++ (Repast SC++) project addresses this need by developing a next generation ABMS system explicitly focusing on large scale distributed computing platforms. The first part of this tutorial will consist of a working introduction to the Repast SC++ toolkit as a useful and usable framework. The second part will focus on the implementation of an ABMS model including hands-on exercises.
