Training Session

Modeling for supporting decision in urban management issues

7-11 December 2015 - Siem Reap (Cambodia)

resources/other/trainingSession/SiemReap2015/photos/group.JPG

This training session took place at the Apsara Authorities, where we introduced how to build a model with agent-based approach, using GAMA. In a new and very fast growing city such as Siem Reap, some measures have to be taken to anticipate the future of the city, and modeling is a science that can give some solutions to face those problems.

The training session was divided into 2 parts :

  • A theoretical part (3 days) dealing with the following subjects :
    • Urban issues and introduction to Agent-Based Modeling
    • Presentation of the modeling methodology
    • Introduction to GAMA with a model on urban segregation
    • GIS datas and graphs to model urban mobility
    • GIS, Raster datas and graphs to model urban growth
    • Use of experiments to calibrate and explore models
  • A practical part (2 days) to build a model about urban mobility in Siem Reap (by groups of 4/5 people)

A Glance at Sustainable Urban Development (JTD)

July 2014 - Da lat (Vietnam)

The JTD (Journ??es de Tam Dao) is an annual gathering of french-talkers researchers during the summer for one week, dealing with a specific subject related to sustainable development. For this 8th JTD, the topic was about sustainable urban development, and a workshop has been made especially about how to use tools as GAMA to build models in order to explore and understand urban spatial dynamics.

Trainers : Drogoul Alexis, Banos Arnaud, Hu???nh Quang Nghi, Tr????ng Ch?? Quang, V?? ?????c ??n.

The perception and Management of Risk (JTD)

July 2013 - Da lat (Vietnam)

The JTD (Journ??es de Tam Dao) is an annual gathering of french-talkers researchers during the summer for one week, dealing with a specific subject related to sustainable development. For this 7th JTD, the topic was about the perception and management of risks, and a workshop has been made especially about how to use tools as GAMA to build models in order to understand past crises to better understand the present.

Water and its many Issues (JTD)

July 2012 - Vietnam

The JTD (Journ??es de Tam Dao) is an annual gathering of french-talkers researchers during the summer for one week, dealing with a specific subject related to sustainable development. For this 6th JTD, the topic was about the perception and management of risks, and a workshop has been made especially about how to use tools as GAMA to build models with an agent-based approach.

Contribute

Since GAMA is a free opensource software, we are proud to share the source code with anyone who wants to contribute to the platform. Note that GAMA is easy to extand through the use of additionnal plugins.

Table of content

Developer documentation

A more complete documentation exists on Github at the following address : https://github.com/gama-platform/gama/wiki. You can find here the last updated version of the documentation (the documentation of the latest git version), and also a developer documentation (which is not available in the "regular" website).

Source Code

GAMA can be downloaded as a regular application or built from source, which is necessary if you want to contribute to the platform. The source code is available from this GITHub repository:

https://github.com/gama-platform/gama

Which you can also browse from the web here. It is, in any case, recommended to follow the instructions on this page in order to build GAMA from source.

GAMA Dev mailing list

If you want to contribute to the platform, you can send a request to the developping team to be in the gama-dev@googlegroups.com mailing list.

Developers

GAMA is being designed, developed and maintained by an active group of researchers coming from different institutions in France and Vietnam. Please find below a short introduction to each of them and a summary of their contributions to the platform:

  • Alexis Drogoul, Senior Researcher at the IRD, member of the UMMISCO International Research Unit. Mostly working on agent-based modeling and simulation. Has contributed and still contributes to the original design of the platform, including the GAML language (from the meta-model to the editor) and simulation facilities like Java2D displays.
  • Patrick Taillandier, Associate Professor at the University of Rouen, member of the IDEES CNRS Mixed Research Unit. Contributes since 2008 to the spatial and graph features (GIS integration, spatial operators) and to parameter space search algorithms. Currently working on new features related to graphical modeling and traffic simulation.
  • Benoit Gaudou, Associate Professor at the University Toulouse 1 Capitole, member of the IRIT CNRS Mixed Research Unit. Contributes since 2010 to documentation and unit test generation and coupling mathematical (ODE and PDE) and agent paradigms.
  • Arnaud Grignard, software engineer and PhD fellow (PDI-MSC) at UPMC. Contributes since 2011 to the development of new features related to visualization (3D Display), online analysis and interaction.
  • Huynh Quang Nghi, software engineering lecturer at CTU and PhD fellow (PDI-MSC) at UPMC. Contributes since 2012 to the development of new features related to GAML parser, coupling formalisms in EBM-ABM and ABM-ABM.
  • Truong Minh Thai, software engineering lecturer at CTU and PhD fellow (PRJ322-MOET) at IRIT-UT1. Contributes since 2012 to the development of new features related to data management and analysis.
  • Nicolas Marilleau, Researcher at the IRD, member of the UMMISCO International Research Unit and associate researcher at DISC team of FEMTO-ST institute. Contributes since 2010 to the development of headless mode and the high performance computing module.
  • Philippe Caillou, Associate professor at the University Paris Sud 11, member of the LRI and INRIA project-team TAO. Contributes since 2012 and actually working on charts, simulation analysis and BDI agents.
  • Vo Duc An, Post-doctoral Researcher, working on synthetic population generation in agent-based modelling, at the UMMISCO International Research Unit of the IRD. Has contributed to bringing the platform to the Eclipse RCP environment and to the development of several features (e.g., the FIPA-compliant agent communication capability, the multi-level architecture).
  • Truong Xuan Viet, software engineering lecturer at CTU and PhD fellow (PDI-MSC) at UPMC. Contributes since 2011 to the development of new features related to R caller, online GIS (OPENGIS: Web Map Service - WMS, Web Feature Services - WMS, Google map, etc).
