Appended below are news items that might be of use to researchers interested in Agent-based Computational Economics (ACE), the computational study of economic processes modeled as dynamic systems of interacting agents.

These ACE news notes provide a sample selection of the new materials that have been included at the ACE Website since the last preparation of news notes. These summary ACE news notes are prepared as time permits and are posted at the ACE website. Whenever news notes are ready for posting, a brief announcement giving a pointer to this posting is emailed to all participants in a moderated announcements-only Majordomo ACE news list.
