27th EUROPEAN Conference on Modelling and Simulation


ECMS 2013

May 27th - 30th, 2013


Policy Modelling (PM)


The 1960s and 1970s saw some first modelling and simulation attempts at
advising policy makers. Half a century later it is the time to review the
current state of affairs in computer-assisted, simulation-based policy
modelling. This new track offers researchers an opportunity to submit
papers in a wide variety of application areas and from a wide variety of
simulation approaches, among them:

  • system dynamics for forecasting and for foreseeing alternative futures  microsimulation for forecasting national and regional demographic developments

  • participatory modelling and simulation in environmental management, land use change, urban development and other areas

  • supporting political decision making with scenario building

  • designing the whole cycle of policy analysis, modelling and simulation with integrated tools for stakeholder involvement

  • supporting the transformation and coding of natural language texts and conceptual models into formal simulation models

  • visualizing conceptual models and simulation results of complex policy contexts to stakeholders
