AnyLogic
Developed by: T. A. Company"
Available at: http://www.anylogic.com/
Abstract
AnyLogic is a multi paradigm simulation tool that brings together System Dynamics, Process-centric (AKA Discrete Event), and Agent Based approaches within one modeling language and one model development environment. AnyLogic set of primitives and library objects allows you to model manufacturing and logistics, business processes, human resources, consumers' and patients' behavior, as well as the environment (the ``background'') in their natural interaction. The object-oriented model design paradigm supported by AnyLogic provides for modular and incremental construction of large models. AnyLogic can deploy both Java applets and applications.

Simio
Developed by: S. LLC
Available at: http://www.simio.com/
Abstract
Simio combines Object-Oriented Simulation with Discrete Event, Continuous, and Agent-Based Simulation. Simio implements several technical innovations to overcome the scalability and difficulty of use problems common in most O-O products. While Simio's standard library of objects includes some sophisticated manufacturing objects (like accumulating conveyors that merge), it remains general purpose to effectively model many common applications. The included full 3D animation produces compelling animation. The ability to modify and define intelligent objects using process graphs without programming, makes simulation software easier for decision-makers to use.

SeSAm
Developed by: U. W\"urzburg
Available at: http://www.simsesam.de/
Abstract
SeSAm (Shell for Simulated Agent Systems) provides a generic environment for modelling and experimenting with agent-based simulation. SeSAm agents consist of a body, that contains a set of state variables and a behaviour that is implemented in form of UML-like diagram. Based on an extensive number of primitive components, a user is able to design a simulation graphically without knowing the syntax of a traditional programming language. It is written in Java and it is freeely downloadable.

SimWalk
Developed by: S. S. AG
Available at: http://www.simwalk.ch/
Abstract
SimWalk is an agent-based pedestrian simulation software developed by Savannah Simulation in cooperation with the ETH Zurich, in Switzerland. With SimWalk you can model and simulate the behaviour of large aggregations of people in places such as shopping centres, railway stations, bridges, airports and so on

DEx
Developed by: infini-X
Available at: http://dextk.org/dex/index.html
Abstract
DEx, the Dynamic Experimentation toolkit, aims to provide a fast, flexible, and easy-to-use platform for developing, analyzing, and visualizing dynamic multi-body simulations. The kernel and utility classes constitute a framework that can be used alone in C++ or in combination with the DEx language, a domain-specific language based on C++ designed for rapid prototyping. It compiles under Linux and it is available for download.

Brahms
Developed by: A. iSolutions - NASA Ames Research Center
Available at: http://www.agentisolutions.com/index.htm
Abstract
Brahms is a multi-agent language with a virtual machine on top of the Java VM. The Brahms VM can run in simulation mode or in real-time mode, which allows us to use Brahms also as a MAS development environment. It can be used freely for research purposes.

StarLogo
Developed by: MIT
Available at: http://education.mit.edu/starlogo/
Abstract
StarLogo is a programmable modeling environment for exploring the workings of decentralized systems -- systems that are organized without an organizer, coordinated without a coordinator. With StarLogo, you can model (and gain insights into) many real-life phenomena, such as bird flocks, traffic jams, ant colonies, and market economies.

NetLogo
Developed by: U. W. N. University
Available at: http://ccl.northwestern.edu/netlogo/
Abstract
NetLogo is a cross-platform multi-agent programmable modeling environment. NetLogo was authored by Uri Wilensky in 1999 and is under continuous development at the CCL (the people who brought you StarLogoT). NetLogo also powers the HubNet participatory simulation system. NetLogo is free of charge. For a fuller description, click here.
