group in LORIA, more information are available on its web site.
My research domain is about multi-agent systems as a modeling paradigm
for complex systems.
activity is grounded on the AA4MM meta-model and its first
implementation by J Siebert. It has grown in several directions and led
to a new implementation
- Understanding and analysis of
complex systems: providing multi-level/multi-scale multi-agent
models in order to simulate collective behaviour and
analyse the relationships between individual features and collective
of the software named mecsyco (www.mecsyco.com) which is used for
different proofs of concept examples and smart-grids simulations with
More information will be found on mecsyco website.

some collective behaviour/properties of the MAS and providing tools to
dynamically adapt the collective behaviour of a
system to maintain it in a desired state.
- Biases of simulation and collective properties. We propose a
formalization of multi-agents models (as Discrete dynamical
systems) to answer the question When observing some collective
behavior, is it a property of the model or a bias of the
implementation choices ? see here
for more details (coll. with N. Fates).
