In society, institutions are the foundation that governs human behaviour through rules, norms, and regulations. The actions and interactions of individuals are shaped by these institutions, forming a cyclic system with numerous parameters and factors. Altering any of these factors, triggers the entire system to transition into a new state that...

Amid the Anthropocene, the escalating threat of flooding, driven by extreme rainfall and sea-level rise, challenges societies worldwide. In the last two decades, floods have impacted billions and inflicted colossal economic losses. Concurrently, the global trend towards urbanization predicts that by 2050, about 70\% of the global population will...

This paper presents a System of Systems Engineering approach to aircraft design. For this purpose, conventional design disciplines are coupled with Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation (ABMS) defining a unique optimization problem. The proposed methodology is applied to design seaplanes for an on-demand transportation system connecting the Greek...

The hospitality industry, struggling with significant staff shortages, has increasingly turned to service robots as a solution. However, the prevalent service robot’s design with anthropomorphic appearance is considered inharmonious with the fine-dining restaurant ambiance and may harm the guests’ perception of the service. An alternative...

Agent-based models (ABMs) are increasingly utilized in ecology and related fields, yet concerns persist regarding the lack of consideration for lessons learned from previous models. This study explores the potential of systematically conducted ABM reviews to contribute to cumulative science and theory development by synthesizing individual ABM...

The trajectory planning for a fleet of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) on a roadmap is commonly referred to as the multi-agent path finding (MAPF) problem, the solution to which dictates each AGV's spatial and temporal location until it reaches its goal without collision. When executing MAPF plans in dynamic workspaces, AGVs can be...

Future power systems, in which generation will come almost entirely from variable Renewable Energy Sources (vRES), will be characterized by weather-driven supply and flexible demand. In a simulation of the future Dutch power system, we analyze whether there are sufficient incentives for market-driven investors to provide a sufficient level of...

In this study, we present a novel modeling framework that provides a stylized representation of coastal adaptation and migration dynamics under sea level rise (SLR). We develop an agent-based model that simulates household and government agents adapting to shoreline change and increasing coastal flood risk. This model is coupled to a gravity...

The volume of instant delivery has witnessed a significant growth in recent years. Given the involvement of numerous heterogeneous stakeholders, instant delivery operations are inherently characterized by dynamics and uncertainties. This study introduces two order dispatching strategies, namely task buffering and dynamic batching, as...

Over the past decade, there has been a surge of interest in the application of agent-based simulation models to evaluate flexible transit solutions characterized by different degrees of short-term flexibility in routing and scheduling. A central modelling decision in the development is how one chooses to represent the mode- and route-choices...

Value and moral change have increasingly become topics of interest in the philosophical literature. Several theoretical accounts have been proposed. These are usually based on certain theoretical and conceptual assumptions. Their strengths and weaknesses are often difficult to determine and compare because they are based on limited empirical...

The concept of deterrence, using fear of punishment to encourage compliant behavior, is widely discussed. However, deterrence often places an emphasis on the economic side of compliance while neglecting other possibly crucial factors, as is argued by the literature. Psychological factors, notably the personal norm and the social norm, often...

De Kindertelefoon is a children's helpline aimed at providing (pre-)adolescents with a person to talk to for a variety of subjects such as bullying, sex, and abuse. These people who talk for De Kindertelefoon need proper training and guidance. Among the tools that De Kindertelefoon provides is the 5-phase model, a conversational model....

Rotterdam the Hague Airport (RTHA) is planning to implement a new self-service luggage check-in system which has a different concept of operations compared to the current self-service system for luggage check-in. To efficiently develop, evaluate and implement this new system, a simulation optimization model is required to test different system...

Transshipment is a key component of modern-day shipping logistics. Container supply chains rely on transhipment hubs to access remote locations. With globalisation driving growth in container trade, maritime congestion is rising at container terminals in ports worldwide. This is expected to worsen as demand continues to grow. The ill effects of...

In this thesis, wealth distribution in a closed economic system is examined by studying the simple inclusion process (SIP). The simple inclusion process is a model coming from statistical physics that models the jumping of particles in a graph. In the model particles have attraction among each other and each site also has a characteristic...

Negotiation is not a skill that comes naturally to most people. However, most people could benefit from attaining good negotiation skills. Non-verbal behaviour plays an important role in negotiations. Previous studies have shown a link between mimicry through conversational agents and self-regulation of non-verbal behaviour. The current study...

Efficient repositioning strategies for idle vehicles in ride-sourcing systems help reduce passengers' waiting time and drivers' operational costs, which help platforms attract more passengers and drivers. In this paper, we propose a decentralized repositioning strategy for drivers, in which drivers make individual decisions on where they...

Corporations’ economic activities put significant stress on the environment. In order to limit global warming to 1.5°C, companies need to significantly reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. However, shifting the responsibility of decarbonisation from being solely on governments to being shared with these companies is only a recent phenomenon....
