Simulating Cities: A Software Engineering Perspective

Abstract: Despite all the reasons why complex simulations are desirable for decision and policy making, and despite advances in computing power, large distributed simulations of urban areas are still rarely used, with most of their adoption in military applications. The reality is that developing distributed simulations is much harder than developing non-distributed, specialized ones, and requires a much higher level of software engineering expertise.
This talk looks at urban simulations from a software engineering and systems design perspective, and puts forward the idea that non-traditional decompositions in simulation load management are not just beneficial for these applications, but are likely the only way to move that field forward.
