Advances in Validation, Parameterization and Uncertainty Analysis of Agent-Based Models of Human-Environment Interactions

Stream    : D - System Identification and Uncertainty in Environmental Computing

Session Leader: Christian Troost (Universität Hohenheim, Germany), Thomas Berger (Universität Hohenheim, Germany), Leila Niamir (Mercator Research Institute on Global Climate Change, Berlin, Germany), Zhanli Sun (IAMO, Halle, Germany), Melvin Lippe (Thünen Institute of International Forestry and Forest Economics, Hamburg, Germany), Andrew Bell (Boston University, USA), Gary Polhill (The James Hutton Institute, Dundee, UK)
Description

For this session we invite contributions that present and
discuss approaches to critically assess validity and robustness in
agent-based simulation studies of human-environment interactions. We
invite presentations on case studies that (successfully or
unsuccessfully) developed or applied innovative validation and
parameterization strategies or adopted new approaches for uncertainty
and sensitivity analysis. Conceptual work and literature reviews on the
adoption of methodology for calibration, validation, uncertainty and
sensitivity analysis in the field of social-ecological ABM are also welcome.
