Title: ECOLANG - A communication language for simulations of complex ecological systems
Issue Date: 2005
Abstract: This document introduces ECOLANG, a communication language used for simulations of complex ecological systems. The language was developed with the main purpose of interchanging information between a simulation application of aquatic ecosystems (EcoDynamo) and several external agents. These agents have some goals about the simulation results or the simulated system. Examples of the former may be a calibration agent, with the goal of optimising the fit between observed and simulated results, whereas an example of the latter may be an aquaculture/farming agent, looking for production optimisation. This document focus on messages exchanged between EcoDynamo and the two mentioned agents providing examples of the communication protocol. This work is part of a larger project, where ECOLANG will be used as a tool for "goal-oriented intelligent simulations", towards sustainable management of coastal ecosystems.
