Informationen zur Special Session "Agent-based management science"
In recent years, the application of agent-based simulation as a research method in management science has gained attraction. Simulation appears to be a powerful method to examine complex and emergent phenomena that incorporate a multitude of interrelated issues. Since manifold interacting issues lead to intractable dimensions in analytical modeling and are particularly difficult to control in empirical research, simulation offers the potential to overcome the weaknesses of these research methods. We encourage contributions that reflect the application of simulation methodology to research questions in management science.
