SeSAm (Shell for Simulated Agent Systems) provides a generic environment for modelling and experimenting with agent-based simulation. We specially focused on providing a tool for the easy construction of complex models. 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 building blocks, a user is able to design visually a simulation without programming in a traditional language. A component for evolutionary adaptation of parameters is also integrated. This specification is executable in the same environment and the dynamics of this simulation may be observed. As there are freely configurable instruments for gathering data and scripting options for constructing simulation experiments, SeSAm is a highly valuable tool for MAS simulations especially for complex models with flexible agent behaviour and interactions.
