Past Academic Activity

Early research interests was in the economics of telecommunications, the software industry and regulation. Denis Phan has published papers and various books in this field (TIC papers).

Since 2000 his main research interest have been cognitive and computational economics & social sciences (ACE, ACS, cognitive economics and complex systems papers).In the field of computational economics, Together with Antoine Beugnard, a computer scientist, Denis Phan built Moduleco, a modular multi-agent platform designed to simulate markets, organisations, social phenomena and population dynamics. This software is actually maintained at the University of Manchester (Computer Science Department) by Gilles Daniel. In an endeavour to unify existing agent-based platforms, Moduleco becomes a MadKit plugin by may, 2004, in cooperation with Jacques Ferber. Others works include emergence in artificial society in co-operation with Jean Louis Dessalles.

In the field of cognitive economics and complex systems, Denis Phan works in co-operation with physicists Jean Pierre Nadal and Mirta Gordon as an associate member of CENECC : CENtre d'Etudes des systèmes Complexes et de la Cognition (Center for the Study of Complex Systems and Cognition) at the ENS. Denis Phan Jean Pierre Nadal and Mirta Gordon work also with economist Roger Waldeck on the emergence of cooperation in communities.

Denis Phan has organized three main researchers school in the field of complex system dynamics & multi-agent system applied to Social and Human Science (SHS): Agay 2004, together with Jean Pierre Nadal and Gérard Weisbuch; Porquerolles 2005, together with Frederic Amblard and Nils Ferrand, and LaLonde 2007, together with Frederic Amblard, Arnaud Banos, Anne Bretagnolle, Eric Darmon, Eric Daude, Enrico Scalas and Celine Vacchiani-Marcuzzo. From This schools, we published introductory books on MAS modeling and simulation in Human and Social Sciences. One in French (Amblard, Phan, 2006) at Hermes-Lavoisier and a partial but enhanced translation in English (Phan, Amblard, 2007) at The Bardwell Press, Oxford.

Between 2007 and 2009, Denis Phan was head of the ANR-CORPUS project "Corpus of Ontologies for Multi-Agents Systems in Geography, Economics, Marketing and Sociology"   (COSMAGEMS). In this context, coauthorship include Jacques FerberPierre Livet, Jean Pierre MüllerLena Sanders and Franck Varenne.

Between 2009 and 2012, he was member of the ANR-Syscom project "Urban Collective Dynamics: Individual and Spatial Heterogeneities (DyXi) coordinated by Jean Pierre Nadal

Between 2012 and 2014, he is a member of the ANR project "TransMonDyn" coordinated by Lena Sanders

Between 2012 and 2016 he was the coordinator of Complex System Network (RNSC Label 2013) "MEO-SMASH : Méthodologie, Épistémologie, Ontologies pour les SMA en SHS (Methodology, Épistémology, Ontology for Agent Based Model in Social and Human Sciences)"
