Component based models and simulation experiments for multi-agent systems in James II

In: Working Notes of the 6th International Workshop AT2AI-6: From Agent Theory to Agent Implementation. Workshop at the Seventh International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems AAAMAS 2008, ed. by Bernhard Jung and Fabien Michel and Alessandro Ricci and Paolo Petta, pp. 83–92, Österreichisches Forschungsinstitut für Artificial Intelligence (Wien, Austria), Estoril, Portugal. Technical Report.

The architecture of the modelling and simulation framework James II facilitates its reuse for a broad range of applications, including agent-based modelling and simulation. Simulation studies can be done by using component based models, which may have been defined in an external IDE and saved in an standardized way. We created a customisable middleware for James II, which can be easily extended to read various experiments and models from different sources, to dynamically instrument the created structures, to execute models on different hardware infrastructures efficiently, to store simulation data into diverse data sinks, which can be used to create specialised IDEs, and which can be fully integrated into other applications.
