Metamodelling for Agent Based Modelling: An Application for Continuous Double Auctions

Abstract : Agent-Based Modelling is gaining wider acceptance as a paradigm for social research. However, it still present limitations in the management of the process to generate the simulations from the initial conceptual models. Thus, it is difficult to reuse the knowledge from available models and adapt it to different hypotheses. This paper proposes the use of metamodels in order to define explicitly the core concepts of a problem and to differentiate the aspects involved in the process. A case study for continuous double auctions shows how to define the related metamodel and use it to address alternative situations in these auctions. The case study drives the discussion on the advantages and limitations that metamodelling can bring to social simulation.
