Investigation phase
*How can agent attributes be investigated?
*How can complex decision structures be dealt
with?
*How can changing decision situations be addressed?

Conceptualisation phase
*When is Agent Based Modelling appropriate, when not
?
*Which are the relevant theories and frameworks to be considered in the context of environmentally relevant behaviour simulation?
*How to decide which agents are to be considered in a given situation?

Operationalisation and quantification phase
*How can the conceptualised agent behaviours be quantified?
*How can the interaction between different agents be operationalised?
to:

'''Applications of ABM in the context of socio-ecological transitions'''

Main question:
*Which socio-ecological transitions have been studied
with ABM?

Related questions:
*For which types of socio-ecological transitions is ABM suitable?
*What were the advantages and drawbacks
?

'''Operationalisation and quantification of socio-ecological transitions in the context of ABM'''

Main question:
*How can agent rules, their interaction and relationship with the environment be operationalised and empirically quantified to simulate transitions of socio-ecological systems?

Related questions:
*Which agents and social structures should be considered?
*How can the interactions among agents, social structure and the environment be operationalised?
*How can the interactions among agents, social structure and the environment be quantified, i.e. which methods and concepts from which disciplines can be used for doing so?
*Do specific application fields require specific operationalisation and quantification procedures?
*To which extent can the operationalisation and quantification procedures be generalised?

The main goals of the workshop will be (i) to share model design experiences; (ii) to discuss key issues related to model design; and (iii) to identify some limitations and best practice guidelines. Key issues, limitations and best practice guidelines will be addressed for each of the three phases of the model design, namely investigation, conceptualisation and operationalisation.
The workshop will consist
of three parts: A general introduction framing the issue, a presentation of case studies related to resource management by the workshop participants, and a discussion of key issues, limitations and best practice guidelines.

This workshop has two aims: First, to provide a typology of issues in socio-ecological transitions which have been empirically simulated with ABM. Second, to discuss methodologies for an operationalisation and quantification of (i) agent rules; and (ii) interactions among agents on the one hand and between agents and the environment on the other hand, each in the context of socio-ecological transitions.
The workshop will consist of three parts: A general introduction framing the issue, a presentation of case studies related to transitions of socio-ecological systems by the workshop participants,
and a discussion of the below-mentioned questions.

As it is intended to work with a wiki-platform, participants are kindly invited to bring along their laptops.
