From the reviews: "This volume is based on papers accepted for the Second International Workshop on Multi-Agent-based Simulation ... . The editorial efforts, however, make it a reader ... which can successfully be used in a university seminar ... . Our students admitted that they had learnt a lot in reading, reporting and reviewing the selected papers ... . All other readers will certainly draw the same profit from reading this book. In the end, we can conclude our review with a recommendation to use this book in more university seminars ... ." (Michael Moehring and Klaus G. Tritzsch, Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation, April, 2002)
