You need to create Java-based agents that simulate actions of community members. The purpose of the simulation is to predict the further developments in communities.

How can one mimic a community? It is not a solid thing with some rules of living. Each community member acts according to their purpose and follow own strategy. Therefore, to understand how community functions, we look for a possibility to mimic each community member. Agent-based models and based on them multi-agent systems give us a possibility to model and realize agents, their actions, their goals and strategies.

We have already created agent based models for the Game of Thrones (partly on the Figure below) community and other real internet communities using XML-based format of i* modeling approach. The next challenge is mapping of i* models (XML) into Java agents and simulating communities using RePast Java library.
