We present here an agent-based model and simulation of the French labour market WorkSim. Based on an existing economic model, ARTEMIS, WorkSim is a full multiagent system, where agents (e.g. individuals, firms) possess detailed attributes and elaborated behaviours in order to reflect the real labour market as close as possible. We illustrate our approach(More)
The aim of this work is to design a Multi-Agent System (MAS) simulation to model the French labor market. We departed from an economic model proposed by Cahuc and Carcillo to model the introduction of a new job contract into the labor market. We designed a specific methodology to convert this equation-based model to an agentbased model, and calibrated our(More)

We propose to implement and simulate an economic model that studies the potential effects of the introduction of a new type of a job contract into the French labor market. This transition from a classical economic model to an agent-based simulation allows us to reproduce the same tendencies found in the former one and to observe a new dimension that emerges(More)
Many empirical studies emphasize the role of social networks in job search. The social network implicated in this process is known to be characterized by diversified properties, including communities, homophily or ties having various strength levels. Nevertheless, previous models of the labor markets fail to capture the complexity of social networks, as(More)
