CoMSES 2019

Welcome to CoMSES 2019!

CoMSES Net is hosting its third virtual conference between October 7th - October 25th, 2019! 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 may 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 interact with the presenters.

If you are interested in submitting a video presentation for CoMSES 2019, please do the following:

  1. Submit a presentation title and abstract by the end of Friday, August 30 2019.
  2. Record a narrated video that does not exceed 12 minutes. You can film yourself giving a talk, have a narrated slide show, or a combination of slides, animations, model simulations, and narration. With modern video editing software it’s relatively easy to record a high quality presentation!
  3. During the conference, participants may ask you questions - please do your best to respond to these in a timely fashion. You should automatically receive emails or notifications when other people post questions or comments on your presentation. Only registered members will be able to post questions and comments.
  4. During the conference, please take the time to view other presentations and interact with the other speakers. Since the conference runs over a three week period you will be able to view all the sessions and not be stymied by parallel sessions with interesting talks.
  5. Make sure your profile page is up to date by the time of submission.


Abstract and video submission instructions will be included below when submissions are open.

Video Submission Acceptance Criteria

Video submission acceptance is based on the following criteria:

In the time between presentation submission and the start of the conference we will verify all submissions for eligibility and may contact presenters if adjustments are needed.

Presentations are posted as forum topics, with top-level conference themes pinned to the top of the conference page. In order to post comments, feedbacks, and engage in discussion with the presenters and other participants you will need to create a account or sign in with an existing account.
CoMSES 2019 is now over and so you might not receive any response from the original authors, but the presentations and comments are still available.
