Agent-based modelling has a long history of success in many related fields from economics and cooperative behaviours, to social conflict, civil violence and revolution. However, its use remains very limited in studies of how human interaction is affected by more complex aspects of human behaviour, such as personality, emotional state and conflict.
We organised the first ABMHuB workshop at the 2019 Conference on Artificial Life in Newcastle, UK. ABMHuB aims to bring together researchers who are interested in using agent-based modelling to understand human behaviour. It is a combination of computational modelling, psychology and behavioural science, which is a new and growing area of research.
