DrillSim: A Simulation Framework for Emergency Response Drills [chapter]

Vidhya Balasubramanian, Daniel Massaguer, Sharad Mehrotra, Nalini Venkatasubramanian
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This way, by using a simulation coupled with an on-going drill, IT solutions can be tested in a less expensive but realistic scenario.  ...  However, exhaustive and realistic validation of these IT solutions is difficult; proofs are not available, simulations lack realism, and drills are expensive and cannot be reproduced.  ...  The proposed simulation framework is a multi-agent system for crisis response activities that mainly (a) embodies agents that drive the simulation in different roles and make decisions and (b) captures  ...

A Distributed Multi-Agent Framework for Simulating the Diffusion of Innovations

Serban GEORGESCU, Hiroshi OKUDA
2008 Journal of Power and Energy Systems  
In this paper we report on the newly developed framework MADS (Multi-Agent Diffusion Simulation), designed for simulating the diffusion of innovations.  ...  MADS uses a distributed infrastructure, also supported by agents, for data and model management. In itself, this is not a new idea.  ...  By using a multi-agent infrastructure, a virtual database of "simulation parts" was created. These parts can then be easily accessed and combined inside the main simulation.  ...
