Solving Critical Simulation Problems Under Emergency Conditions Using Volunteer Computing

Abstract

Paper presents a case study where a multi-agent system based volunteer computing platform is used to solve critical simulation problem under emergency conditions. As a result, we extend working platform functionality, better utilize agent paradigm and get valuable data on prototype performance. Main resulting novelty is an advancement in system architecture.
