Future directions in agent-based modelling

In the current edition of Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, Lynne Hammill (Dept of Sociology, University of Surrey) writes:

"I suggest that to promote the use of ABM, the ABM community needs [to] demonstrate the value of modelling to other social scientists by showing-by-doing and offering training projects; and to produce tools, guidance on good-practice and basic building blocks."

"[It] will be some time before there is in sociology the general acceptance of modelling that exists in economics," she writes, and I'd be quick to insert psychology in there, too.

In an effort to bring modelling to the people-people, I'd also add that Joshua Epstein's answers to "Why Model?" be brought to their attention.
