Tatiana Filatova is an Associate Professor at CSTM, University of Twente in the Netherlands. During her PhD (defended in 2009, cum laude) she spent 1.5 years at George Mason University (USA) as a Visiting Researcher. Tatiana’s research focuses on exploring how behavioral changes at micro level may lead to regime shifts on macro level in complex adaptive socio-environmental systems, in particular in application to climate change economics (adaptation and mitigation). She actively uses agent-based modeling in her research, which is distinguished by several academic awards, and is supported by FP7, Dutch NWO, US NSF and GEF funding.

Dr. Arika Ligmann-Zielinska works in the Department of Geography at Michigan State University. She graduated from a Joint Doctoral Program in Geography at San Diego State University and University of California Santa Barbara. Her research activities encompass spatial modeling approaches that capture the dynamic relationships within coupled human and natural systems. She has pioneered spatiotemporal sensitivity analysis of model output, which partitions model outcome variability such that the underlying causes of the simulated macro phenomena can be identified and adequately addressed. She has published in GIS and modeling journals. She has also been a PI on a number of research projects on spatial agent-based modeling, funded by federal and local agencies.

Behrooz Hassani-Mahmooei received his PhD from Monash University in 2013 for his thesis on agent-based modelling of climate change impacts on sustainability. He has been developing ABMs since 2005 in areas such as rent-seeking, trust, conflict, and migration as well as collaborating in multiple research projects focusing on classroom networking, injury recovery and dynamics of policy making. Behrooz is now an associate of Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics as well as a Senior Data Analyst at Institute for Safety, Compensation and Recovery Research, both at Monash University.

Forrest Stonedahl is an assistant professor of computer science at Augustana College. His primary research focuses on the use of evolutionary algorithms to explore the effects of varying parameters in multi-agent simulations, and is the author of the open-source BehaviorSearch software for performing this task. He has been involved in a variety of agent-based modeling projects in application areas such as urban development (modeling land usage) and linguistics (language cascades in social networks), and his research has fused evolutionary algorithms and agent-based systems in a variety of ways. Forrest Stonedahl's other scholarly interests include studying dynamic processes on networks, emergence in complex adaptive systems, and computer science education.

J. Gary Polhill
Gary Polhill did a degree in Artificial Intelligence and a PhD in Neural Networks before spending 18 months in industry as a professional programmer. Since 1997 he has been working at The James Hutton Institute (formerly the Macaulay Land Use Research Institute) on agent-based modelling of land use and related systems. He works on the simulation of agricultural incentives and ecosystem service provision, domestic energy demand, and everyday pro-environmental behaviour. He is interested in complex systems, social dilemmas, spatially-explicit modelling, and best practice in agent-based modelling, programming and design. He is also interested in the role of ontologies in formally describing and annotating simulation models and experiments.
