The technique is one of most successful techniques created to study human groups. However, its application faces several challenges, as any other research tool. This research line uses HPC to explore new ways to integrate this tool within the social sciences and humanities. This includes technical solutions, but also methodological advances beyond the needs of particular disciplines such as computer science or archaeology. This transdisciplinary effort allows us to develop formal models of… 
Actionable Cultural Understanding for Support to Tactical Operations (ACUSTO): Toward a New Methodological Template for Spatial Decision Support System
Abstract : This report approaches the development of actionable intelligence for counterinsurgency by drawing parallels with the study of criminal events such as homicides, vehicle thefts, and gang

Agent-Based Models
TLDR
Agent-based models provide a methodology to explore systems of interacting, adaptive, diverse, spatially situated actors and offer the potential to advance social sciences and to help us better understand the authors' complex world.
Cellular Automata and Multi-agent Systems as Planning Support Tools
TLDR
This chapter presents an overview of traditional land use and transport models as planning support tools and examines theirfragilities before reviewing a new wave of urban models, and considers the challenges facing the use of new techniques in operational models.
SIMPOP: A Multiagent System for the Study of Urbanism
TLDR
In this paper it is shown how several modifications of rules and parameters alter further the spatial and hierarchical structure of the simulated urban system.
Cellular Automata and Urban Simulation: Where Do We Go from Here?
TLDR
Turing realized that it should be possible to build a meta-machine that could be reconfigured in such a way that it would do any task you could conceivably do with information.
Flocks, herds, and schools: a distributed behavioral model
TLDR
This paper explores an approach based on simulation as an alternative to scripting the paths of each bird individually, an elaboration of a particle system, with the simulated birds being the particles.
Automata-based models of urban systems
TLDR
A framework for geographical automata systems that combines the key features of cellular automata approaches to urban development with multiagent modelling is suggested, pointing the way to new ways of integrating demand supply sides through agent-based modelling.
Chronology for von Neumann ’ s PROBABILISTIC LOGICS AND THE SYNTHESIS OF RELIABLE ORGANISMS FROM UNRELIABLE COMPONENTS
TLDR
The paper that follows is based on notes taken by Dr. R. S. Pierce on five lectures given by the author at the California Institute of Technology in January 1952, and it is the author's conviction that error should be treated by thermodynamic methods, and be the subject of a thermodynamical theory.
Crowd behaves as excitable media during Mexican wave
TLDR
Variants of models originally developed for the description of excitable media are used to demonstrate that Mexican wave collective human behaviour can be quantitatively interpreted by methods of statistical physics.
The discrete dynamics of small-scale spatial events: agent-based models of mobility in carnivals and street parades
TLDR
This work presents a model in which the event space is first explored by agents using ‘swarm intelligence’, Armed with information about the space, agents then move in unobstructed fashion to the event.
