OK, we received only 8 abstracts, with Paul Box promising 4 more. (Jim A: Good to see that you will be there!) The authors and titles are listed below.

In addition, Steve Lytinen is planning a panel discussion on teaching agent-based modeling. I expect he will soon be contacting several of you about participating. This panel could be 30-60 minutes.

The 8 abstracts are enough to fill our SwarmFest-only day, Saturday (along with one featured speaker and a wrapup session at 4:30).

However, we need several of these talks to be Friday, the day we share with NAACSOS, because they would be of interest to NAACSOS and will make room on Saturday for the additional submittals we're expecting.

NAACSOS people: Which of these presentations would you like on the joint day?
o Steve Lytinen's talk on platforms should be of general interest.
o Mike- do you want to talk about Simphony just once to everyone, or separately to each conference? o I also encourage you to consider Paul Cunningham's talk (he is a student of mine): his talk will be about strategies and methods for evaluating parameter sensitivity in a large ABM, a topic on which there is much interest yet few methods and examples.
o Would the discussion of teaching ABMs be of interest to NAACSOS?

Here are the abstracts received so far:

Kyle Newton: Modelling the effectiveness of sterile insect release within a Codling moth population William Rand: Widgets, Planets, and Demons: The Case for the Integration of Human, Embedded, and Virtual Agents via Mediation James Anderson: Agent Based Methods in Ecohydraulics
Michael North: A Brief Introduction to the New Repast Simphony Toolkit
Paul Cunningham: A Sensitivity Analysis of an Individual-based Trout Model
Bryan Thorne: Modeling Blood Vessel Growth: An Integrated Agent Based and Finite Element Analysis Approach Steven Lytinen: A comparison of Agent-based Simulation Platforms Sule Yildirim: Agents of the Mind to Emerge in NetLogo
