Asia-Pacific Regional Conference of the International Microsimulation Association


Social sciences are now on a new state of development. One of the more promising methodologies is agent-based modeling. The Pan-Asian Association for Agent-Based Approach in Social Systems Sciences (PAAA) is the Pan-Asian regional platform to explore the frontiers. Another methodology that is gaining momentum in recent years is microsimulation modeling. The International Microsimulation Association (IMA), launched in October 2005, aims to encourage the advancement of microsimulation research.

AESCS2018, the regular conference of PAAA, mainly focuses on applications of agent-based technologies to social complex systems. Conference participants will present the latest results of various researches, and discuss emergent phenomena and modeling issues of social complex systems, which will provide further understanding on social complex problems with agent-based technologies. AESCS2018 will also give opportunities to discuss the effectiveness and limitation of computational models and methodologies for social sciences.

The AESCS2018 conference is being organized jointly with the IMA Asia-Pacific Regional Conference. The latter is the first Asia-Pacific conference of the International Microsimulation Association being organized outside Australia. The conference is open to all areas of microsimulation including static, dynamic, behavioral, spatial models, methodology, health and any other subjects under microsimulation.
