The editors and contributing authors declare that using ABM may possibly dramatically extend our knowing of human habit in enterprises. this can be made attainable as a result of (a) the computational strength made on hand via technological developments, (b) the relative ease of the programming, (c) the power to borrow simulation practices from different disciplines, and (d) the facility to illustrate how the ABM method truly allows a socio-cognitive standpoint on organizational complexity.

Showcasing contributions from lecturers and researchers of varied backgrounds and self-discipline, this volumes offers an international, interdisciplinary perspective.
