EPIS: a grid platform to ease and optimize multi-agent simulators running

Abstract : This paper presents the work done during the first year of the EPIS project. This project deals with the process of conductingmultiple and parallelmulti agents-based simulations (MABS) on a cluster or a grid in order to generate sufficient data for scientific use (e.g. in the case of a sensibility analysis of a simulation). We provide a new, general and user-friendly approach to marry MABS and High- Performance Computing (HPC). We, thus, propose a workflow and an associated HPC infrastructure. These two permit to easily deploy a lot of simulations on a cluster without any prior parallelizing work. The method wants to be as generic as possible: no particular MABS targeted, no overhead and HPC compliance work has to be done only once. Moreover the user is guided by a web interface that handles the workflow.
