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)
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.
