agent-based simulation, artificial market, traffic simulation, pedestrian simulation, simulation for sustainable society

Recently, social simulation research based on real data has appeared in various fields. This paper introduces studies of Agent-Based Simulation (ABSs) based on real data, focusing on introducing studies in the fields of financial marketing, traffic, pedestrians, and a sustainable society. We also introduce some approaches to establish a general method and/or theory about linking social simulation to real data. Finally, we categorize ABS research for understanding ABS research features.
