MAS-SOC: a Social Simulation Platform Based on Agent-Oriented Programming. This article gives an overview of our efforts in creating a platform for multi-agent based social simulation building on recent progress in the area of agent-oriented programming languages. The platform is called MAS-SOC, and the approach to building multi-agent based simulations with it includes the use of Jason, an interpreter for an extended version of AgentSpeak, and ELMS, a language for modelling environments where cognitive agents are situated. This article also mentions recent work on the use of ontologies in defining environments with ELMS and illustrates the approach with a simple example.
