*First International Workshop on Agent-based Modeling and Simulation of 
Cities (AgentCities14)*

In conjunction with the 5th International Conference on
Ambient Systems, Networks, and Technologies ANT2014 (Hasselt, Belgium)
June 2-5, 2014

The modeling of the dynamics of the cities and their population is of 
great theoretical and practical interest. In the past two-decade 
research from a broad range of fields such as computer graphics, 
physics, robotics, energy, social science, safety science and training 
systems has created simulations involving collections of elements 
(individuals or devices) immersed in cities. Many works have been 
devoted to the study of collective behaviors and their inherent emergent 
properties such as spontaneous organizations of pedestrians into lines, 
oscillations at gates, etc. Among all the existing approaches in 
simulation, those offering the highest level of realism in behavior are 
microscopic approaches because they explicitly attempt to model the 
features that take part in the expression of specific behaviors of 
individuals. Agent-Based Simulations (ABS) are one of the approaches to 
support micro-simulation. ABS principle relies upon a set of autonomous 
agents, which encapsulate the behaviors of individual entities 
(pedestrians, vehicles, devices...) Agent-based modeling allows complex 
behaviors of various interacting entities to emerge from a set of 
simpler behaviors. Phenomena such as flocks of birds, schools of fish and
crowds are good examples of how systems with simple goals can exhibit 
emergent behaviors as the result of the interactions between the 
individuals. Moreover, in contrast to other micro-simulation techniques, 
ABS allows to catch the variety of behaviors composing a real system 
easily. ABS has proven
to be well suited for the simulation of situations where there is a 
large number of heterogeneous individuals who may behave somewhat 
differently. However, as soon as we consider a micro-simulation of 
several agents and their relationships, the complexity of the system and 
associated computational costs increase. We are therefore faced a 
dilemma common in the field of simulation: to manage a compromise 
between performance and accuracy.
The goal of AgentCities is to provides a place where the different 
points of view on the modeling and the simulation of the city's dynamics 
may be discussed. A particular focus is made on agent-based models. The 
accepted application domains are various, from crowds, to smart grid, 
include transport and traffic

AgentCities14 will be held in Hasselt, Belgium (2-5 June 2014) in 
conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Ambient Systems, 
Networks, and Technologies (ANT 2014).
