Repast seems to be an interesting platform on top of which we can test some of the ideas or findings of our cognitive studies. This may even be the pandora box for Nico’s search for a computational flavor to his thesis description. :-O

The Recursive Porous Agent Simulation Toolkit (Repast) is one of several agent modeling toolkits that are available. Repast borrows many concepts from the Swarm agent-based modeling toolkit. Repast is differentiated from Swarm since Repast has multiple pure implementations in several languages and built-in adaptive features such as genetic algorithms and regression. … Repast is at the moment the most suitable simulation framework for the applied modeling of social interventions based on theories and data”.
