COmmon-pool Resources and Multi-Agent Simulations


Welcome to !

This site, developped by the Green research unit 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 are proposing a companion-modelling approach based on a computer tool, CORMAS, which is an agent-based simulation framework that can be downloaded free of charge. The last version released in 2016 can be downloaded here.

You will also be able to access application examples (with a models library) and publications. Check out the paper on the Cormas user community published in 2012 in the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation.

new A new paper on Cormas is available:

We are also regularly delivering training courses.


  • The Sixth edition of MISS-ABMS (Multi-platform International Summer School on Agent-Based Modeling & Simulation) has been held in Montpellier in September, 2016. It has been organized by Agropolis International.
  • News MISS-ABMS 2017 will be organized in September 4th-15th, 2017.
