21st Century COE Program 'Creation of Agent-Based Social Systems Sciences'
Home About ABSSS Research Projects Events Members Blog Member Only
What is ABSSS? The goal of our research program is to establish innovative social science laying the foundation for a grand design for organisations, business, and politics in the 21st century. To analyze complicated social phenomenon and to meet demands to design new social institutions, we are now pursuing the following programs;
(1) reconstruction of the social systems theory based on agent-based approach.
(2) development of a innovative simulation tool and it's technique.
(3) innovative positive analysis and proposals for social policy, using the new social systems theory and simulation tool.
This triune spiral-up approach of 'theory', 'simulation', and 'positive analysis' is the most remarkable feature of Agent-based Social Systems Sciences.
What is the MISSION?
Our 21st Century COE Program* members are made up of staff of 'Department of Computational Intelligence and Systems Science of the Interdisciplinary Graduate School of Science and Engineering', and 'Department of Value and Decision Science of the Graduate School of Decision Science and Technology' at Tokyo Institue of Technology. The former is domestic hub of complex adaptive system and emergent systems theory, and the latter have rich actual achievement of distinctive research and educational program of social sciences. We have set up 8 research projects in our COE Program, and pursue the following missions;
(1) World-level and multilevel research program toward creation of ABSSS.
(2) Open and dynamic educational program.
(3) facility to offer information internationally as the hub of Network of Excellence (NOE).

* The 21st Century COE Program is an initiative by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Technology and Science (MEXT) to cultivate a competitive academic environment among Japanese universities by giving targeted support to the creation of world-standard research and education bases (Centers of Excellence) in a range of disciplines.
