Track Description
The purpose of ADS session is to facilitate dissemination of the most recent advancements in the theory, methodology, application, and toolkits of agent-directed simulation. Agent-directed simulation is comprehensive in the integration of agent and simulation technology, by including models that use agents to develop domain-specific simulations and by also including the use of agent technology to develop simulation techniques and toolkits that are subsequently applied, either with or without agents. Hence, agent-directed simulation consists of three distinct, yet related areas that can be grouped under two categories as follows:
1. Simulation for Agents (agent simulation): simulation of agent systems in engineering, human and social dynamics, military applications etc.
2. Agents for Simulation (which consists of two group activities): (1) agent-supported simulation deals with the use of agents as a support facility to enable computer assistance in problem solving or enhancing cognitive capabilities; and (2) agent based simulation focuses on the use of agents for the generation of model behavior in a simulation study.

Topics list:
Technical and position papers are solicited on the theory, methodology, technology, tools, toolkits, and environments as well as applications. Topics include, but are not limited to the following areas:
1. Theory/Methodology:
· High-level agent specification languages for modeling and simulation.
· Agent programming and simulation modeling languages.
· Distributed simulation for multi-agent systems.
· Formal models of agents and agent societies.
· Advanced agent features for agent simulation.
· Cooperation modeling with holonic agents.
· Agent with personality, agents with dynamic personality, agent with emotions, agents having different types of intelligence such as emotional intelligence, agents with several types of understanding abilities such as multi-vision understanding ability, trustworthy agents, moral agents.
· Verification, validation, and testing of agent-directed simulations.
2. Technology, tools, toolkits, and environments:
· Agent infrastructures and supporting technologies (e.g., interoperability, agent-oriented software engineering environments).
· Modeling, design, and simulation of agent systems based on service-oriented technologies, pervasive computing, web-services, grid computing, autonomic computing, ambient intelligence.
· Agent architectures, platforms, and frameworks.
· Standard APIs for agent simulation programming.
3. Applications:
· Simulation modeling of agent technologies at the organization, interaction (e.g., communication, negotiation, coordination, collaboration) and agent level (e.g., deliberation, social agents, computational autonomy).
· Application of agent simulations in various areas such as biology, business, commerce, economy, engineering, environment, individual, group, and organization behavior, management, simulation gaming/training, social systems.
