Abstract for: Model Analysis Special Interest Group Annual Meeting and Roundtable

The Model Analysis SIG brings together individuals interested in using mathematical and computational techniques to better understand the links between structure and behavior in simulation models. Topics include the formalization of behavior as partial and complete model tests, the automated exploration of model behavior modes, the identification of structural determinants of specific behavioral patterns, numerical techniques for sensitivity analysis and robust policy formulation, and others. This session will serve as the business meeting for the SIG, and serve to introduce those interested in learning about or developing new analysis techniques.
