CoMSES Net is hosting its second virtual conference, CoMSES 2018!
We welcome presentations dealing with agent-based modeling of social, ecological and social-ecological systems, as well as methodological issues in the context of agent-based modeling. This conference will occur online and is intended for CoMSES Net members. During the conference, which will take place over three weeks, talks will be available for viewing on the conference website, our Discourse forums. Q&A will also take place online during this period, as participants and other CoMSES members can engage with speakers on our forum. We will prioritize talks that cover models that have made their model code and documentation available.
A virtual conference will probably not have the same intensity as a face-to-face conference, but we expect lively interaction between participants. Our goal in organizing these virtual conferences is to provide low cost opportunities for engaging interaction within the CoMSES Net community. There will be no registration fee for the conference, but you will need to be registered as a CoMSES member in order to submit a presentation and/or engage with the presenters.

In the 2 weeks between the submission and the start of the conference we will check the submissions for eligibility and may contact presenters if adjustments are needed. We will then organize the presentations into sessions for the conference.
