COmmon-pool Resources and Multi-Agent Simulations


Welcome to Cormas !

This site, developed by the Green research unit (now called UMR SENS) from CIRAD, is devoted to the applied modelling of relationship between societies and their environment.You will find here what we and our partners are doing with multi-agent systems about integrated natural resources management.

- We propose a Companion-Modelling approach (ComMod) based on a computer tool, CORMAS, which is an agent-based simulation framework that can be downloaded free of charge.

- CORMAS last release (05/2021) can be downloaded here.

- You will also be able to access application examples (with a models library) and publications.
