Arnaud Casteigts will present his tool JbotSim to the LaBRI algodist research group.

Here is the abstract:

JBotSim is a java library that offers basic primitives for prototyping, running, and visualizing distributed algorithms in dynamic networks. With JBotSim, one can implement an idea in minutes and interact with it (e.g., add, move, or delete nodes) while it is running. JBotSim is well suited to prepare live demonstrations of your algorithms to colleagues or students; it can also be used to evaluate performance at the algorithmic level, i.e. in terms of the number of messages, number of rounds. Unlike most tools (OMnet, The One, Visidia), JBotSim is not an integrated environment. It is a lightweight library to be used in your program. In this talk, I will give an overview of its distinctive features and architecture, as well as many examples of algorithms and scenarios. This talk will also be the occasion to discuss recent hot topics in distributed computing, which are swarm algorithms and intelligence.
