Over the years, agent-based modeling and simulation has gained significant traction in the fields of management, organization, and economic sciences. This is due to the efforts of researchers from various disciplines such as social sciences, physics, informatics, engineering, and psychology, who have utilized the innovative approach to tackle complex challenges. However, as new opportunities emerge from recent technological advancements and data-driven insights, the field continues to evolve and presents new avenues for exploration. 

We propose a special track to bring together researchers who are passionate about using agent- based modeling and simulation to transcend the boundaries of complexity in management, organization, and economic sciences. We encourage submissions that address recent developments, innovative applications, and future prospects in this field.
