AI4ABM - International AI for Agent-Based Modelling Community

Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) has seen increasing interest across various disciplines, ranging from economics and epidemiology to cybersecurity, social sciences, and climate policy. At the same time, recent progress in AI has yielded exciting new approaches to learning, calibrating, and analysing such models, including deep multi-agent learning and simulation-based inference. This interdisciplinary community is meant to bring together practitioners and theorists to boost ABM method development in AI, and stimulate novel applications across disciplinary boundaries.
