Claudio Cioffi-Revilla's training is in mathematical politics and international relations. He is interested in agent-based simulation and other computational approaches to long-term social science macro-questions such as war and peace, origins or emergence of government, and evolution of the international system. He directs George Mason University's new Center for Social Complexity, where the Long-Range Analysis of War (LORANOW) is now located, and is a member of ESSA, EXYSTENCE, and NAACSOS.

Nick Gotts trained in psychology and artificial intelligence. Until 1996, his research was mainly concerned with qualitative spatial representation and reasoning in humans, other animals, and computers. Since then he has concentrated on complex systems dynamics, particularly on cellular automata, and on agent-based social simulation. Since July 1998 he has been designing and experimenting with agent-based models of land use and water management at the Macaulay Institute, and is particularly interested in ways of comparing agent-based models, and in the relationships between analysis and simulation in the study of complex systems.
