W04: Workshop on Smart Simulation and Modelling for Complex Systems
Organizers: Quan Bai, Minjie Zhang, Takayuki Ito, Xijin Tang, Katsuhide Fujita, Shantanu Chakrabory and Fenghui Ren.
Computer based modelling and simulation has become useful tools to facilitate humans to understand systems in different domains, such as physics, astrophysics, chemistry, biology, economics, engineering and social science. A complex system is featured with a large number of interacting components (agents, processes, etc.), whose aggregate activities are nonlinear and self-organized. Complex systems are hard to be simulated or modelled by using traditional computational approaches due to the complex relationships of components and distributed features of resources, and dynamic work environments. Meanwhile, smart systems such as multi-agent systems have demonstrated advantages and great potentials in modelling and simulating complex systems. The international workshop on Smart Simulation and Modelling for Complex Systems (SSMCS) aims to bring together researchers in both Artificial Intelligence and system modelling/simulation to discuss research challenges and cutting edge techniques in smart simulation and modelling.
