> *First workshop on Platform Dependency for Open Agent-based Complex model
> simulations (OpenPlat)*
> in conjunction with Conference on Complex systems 2015
> *Workshop theme and call for abstracts:*
> Complex models require high amounts of computational power and in some
> cases specific architectural requirements in order to be able to simulate
> and analyse them. This means sometimes models written to be executed on
> certain platforms, have to go through various optimisation processes when
> being adapted for newer architectures such as high performance computing
> grids or GPU cards. Cloud computing is another model which will allow
> researchers to simulate their models in the Cloud. However little is being
> discussed on the computational requirements of the models themselves and
> the agent-based platforms allowing them to be simulated faster on these new
> architectures. This workshop is aimed at understanding these computational
> requirements to lay the foundation of a truly open complex system model.
> The workshop will also target the needs of non-computer scientists in how
> the models can be defined in manners which automatically optimise their
> execution on various architectures. The questions being targeted:
> 1) What are the hardware dependencies that need to be realised for
> complex systems simulations?
> 2) Do hardware dependencies need to be considered as part of the
> modelling processes in order to create fully ‘open’ models which can be
> simulated anywhere at any platform without any changes?
> These questions are crucial to understand how complex system models can be
> ‘opened’ for further research allowing model sharing among various research
> groups and building better and more reliable complex system models for
> multiple disciplines.
> Workshop goals are to spread awareness among the junior and senior
> scholars of complex system modelling and high performance computing
> community and provide grounds for innovations in complex system models
> becoming open source models catering to wider community.
> *Key topics of interest include (but are not limited to)*
> -Parallel computing and architectures to understand how simulations can be
> -Complex systems simulations dependent on architectures executing them
> -Modelling and Simulation for various scenarios
> -Related tools and techniques for hardware and simulation software
> -Current problems faced my researchers in simulation domains
> -Interdisciplinary research
> *Who should participate?* The workshops is suitable for academics,
> researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders engaged in simulation related
> developments. Early career researchers and PhD students are strongly
> encouraged to take part in the discussion.
> *Abstract paper submission guidelines:*
> Authors are requested to submit abstract papers reporting original
> research results and experience. The page limit for papers is 3 pages.
