Designing an Agent-based Simulation of Collective Emotions

Stefan Rank

The creation and demise of e-communities is strongly influenced by emergent emotional phenomena that warrant study above the level of individuals: collective emotions. For an agent-based simulation of these phenomena, our requirements are constrained both by the data available as well as by the scenarios of use for the simulation. In this paper, we consider both the relation to mathematical models developed in parallel as well as the use of the simulation as decision support for interactive conversational systems. We show how both of these 'docking' attempts inform and contribute to the simulation design.
