Paper published in JASSS!

Very excited to say that my paper with several close Care Life Cycle Project colleagues is now available in the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, an excellent free and open-access journal focusing on the simulation of social systems.

Our paper is called When Demography Met Social Simulation: A Tale of Two Modelling Approaches and presents a proof-of-concept model linking agent-based simulation with statistical demographic modelling.  Please cite widely 🙂

Journal paper accepted!

I’m pleased to say that I’ve had a paper accepted to a journal this week: an article written by myself and my colleagues Jakub Bijak, Jason Hilton, Jason Noble and Viet Cao.  The paper is called “When Demography Met Social Simulation: A Tale of Two Modelling Approaches” and will appear in the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation (JASSS) as soon as we submit the final version with a few small changes.

JASSS is an open-access journal, so once the article is available I’ll post a link here.  Hopefully this run of good fortune will continue as I submit my paper to ECMS 2013 in Norway on 15 February!

Submitted a paper to JASSS

On Friday, I submitted a paper as first author to the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, together with my colleagues Jakub Bijak, Viet Cao, Jason Hilton and Jason Noble.

The paper describes an agent-based model applied to the study of partnership formation.  We base the model on a previous one by Francesco Billari called ‘The Wedding Ring’, and extend the model into two spatial dimensions while including substantive empirical data to drive mortality and fertility rates for agents in the model.  We conclude by utilising novel methods of uncertainty quantification (Gaussian emulators) to investigate the impact of some of the key parameters on model output.

We’re excited about this one!  A related paper is headed to Demographic Research within the next few days, so it’s been a productive summer.  Both journals are fully open-access, so if we’re fortunate enough to get both of them accepted links will be posted here on the Publications page.
