Session Name

Agent-based Computational Archaeology: Networks

Session Chair

Frederik Schaff (RUB/DBM),


This session aims at fostering a discussion on best-practice and new methodologies of representing dynamic networks, with a focus (but not necessarily limited to!) archaeological applications.
The application of agent-based modelling to the field of Archaeology is gaining momentum in recent years. The problems tackled are especially complex as a lot of phenomena need to be combined. Examples are: land use and change, population dynamics, social interaction, innovation and movement in geographical space. Because time and its representation are critical aspect the representation and implementation of dynamical networks is especially important to archaeological ABMs.


Extended abstracts (3-4 pages) or full papers (max 12 pages) should be submitted until 30.03.2018 via EasyChair EasyChair
