Special Session

Applications of Modeling and Simulation to Climatic Change and Environmental Sciences - MSCCES
Chair(s): Francisco Mugica, Carlos Gay and Àngela Nebot
 
 
As part of SIMULTECH 2015, Francisco Mugica, Carlos Gay and Àngela Nebot chaired a Special Session on "Applications of Modeling and Simulation to Climatic Change and Environmental Sciences - MSCCES". The main objective of the session is to provide a forum to disseminate and discuss recent and significant research efforts in climate change and atmospheric sciences applications in modeling and simulation based on Computational Intelligence which have significant impact to society.

Keynote Lectures

 
The Role of Domain Specific Languages in Modeling and Simulation
Adelinde M. Uhrmacher, University of Rostock, Germany
 
Today’s keynote address, “The Role of Domain Specific Languages in Modeling and Simulation”, was delivered by Adelinde M. Uhrmacher from University of Rostock, Germany. Simulation, as an experiment performed with a formal model, is meanwhile widely accepted as the third branch of science, complementing theoretical and empirical science. However, “in-silico” experiments often suffer from the lack of reproducibility which has led to the opinion that published simulation results cannot be relied upon.

Agent-based Models for Exploring Social Complexity, with an Application of Network Analysis to Agents
Pietro Terna, Università di Torino, Italy
 
Today’s keynote address, “Agent-based Models for Exploring Social Complexity, with an Application of Network Analysis to Agents”, was delivered by Pietro Terna from the Università di Torino, Italy. Thinking to agent-based models as artifacts, useful to explore economic complexity, means to introduce three concepts: (i) on the technical side, the agent-based methodology; (ii) in the social science perspective, the idea of building artifacts also in the social domain; (iii) in a more general view, the idea of complexity. With an impressive image, this way of researching involves the application of the Galileo’s method in social sciences.

Posters Session

 
 
Today 7 posters were scheduled to be presented in a forum for presenters from around the world to highlight their work and to share their successful ideas with colleagues by presenting a research study, a practical problem-solving effort, or an innovative idea. The Poster presentations provided other conference participants an opportunity to quickly and easily become acquainted with the presenters’ poster topic.
 
Closing Session

 
 
At the closing session, A "Best Paper Award" and a "Best Student Paper Award" were conferred to the author(s) of a full paper presented at the conference, selected by the Program/Conference Chairs based on the best combined marks of paper reviewing, assessed by the Program Committee, and paper presentation quality, assessed by session chairs at the conference venue.
 
Farewell Cocktail

 
 
Time to say goodbye and what a great way of doing it. Enjoy a laugh with new and old friends and we hope to have your presence at the conference’s next edition.
