Article
Full-text available
For each region of France, there is currently a program to implement a plan for regional prevention and management of construction and demolition waste (CDW) used in the buildings and public works (e.g., roads) sector, also called the BTP (from the French Bâtiment et Travaux Publics) sector. To implement such a plan, its complexity must be consider...
Article
Full-text available
The French public and commercial stakeholders need prospective tools to follow how mineral substances criticality change in the French market. After arguing that such tools should necessarily tackle criticality at a complex level, in particular on multiple scales (e.g., France and the EU), we present the first thematic and methodological discussion...
Article
The literature states that the predominantly “top-down only” approach classically taken to formalise the complex sector of artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) in Africa has resulted in the design of ineffective and/or incompatible regulations. This paper discusses a complementary “bottom-up as well” approach, based on the joint design, with loca...
Article
With growing numbers of construction sites, aggregate supply in the Ile-de-France region (Paris and the surrounding area) will be a major issue in the coming years. This means that dialogue is needed between stakeholders to build and evaluate scenarios together for the future in this area of aggregate supply and waste reclamation. This work had the...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
In coming years, mining economists expect the international demand for metals to rise. Market distortions are likely to appear, because producing countries controlling the resources can implement exportation quotas for certain categories of metals. Consequently , consuming countries like France face increasing risks of shortages of some metals. In...
Conference Paper

Cet article synthétise et discute les premiers résultats d'une réflexion méthodologique qui a été menée sur le niveau d'intérêt que porte le secteur minier sur l'adoption des SMA pour une analyse prospective du marché des métaux dits stratégiques (c'est-à-dire des mé-taux qui pourraient se raréfier en raison de possibles quota d'exportations imposé...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The markets of mineral commodities for industrial use (MCI) risk supply shortages in the near future due to a possible restriction policy applied by producers. Therefore, the French government is not reassured because, over the coming decades, such situations may affect French industrial sectors using these products. By taking the world lithium mar...
Article
This chapter describes and discusses a work aiming to contribute to how dynamic sustainable development indicators may be spatially represented in a generic spatial-integrated socioeconomic model (SISM). It means that, at a socioeconomic level, the resulting SISM should be capable of supporting applications modelled at different territorial scales...
Article
Full-text available
Despite the availability a priori of lithium geological resources and an assurance from producers to raise their production capacity in the event of an increase in lithium demand, the French government is not reassured because the lithium world market in general and the French market in particular are not still shielded from a supply shortage. Inde...
Article
In order to better manage artisanal and small-scale gold mining, the Burkinabe authorities have planned to build a suitable methodological support as an aid to elaborating appropriate policies and actions. The developed methodology concerns (a) at a spatial level, the generation and analysis of a geological resources map needed by the artisanal min...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the spatial-integrated socioeconomic model field, a multi-agent approach is appropriate for supporting applications modelled at a detailed territory scale, but it is less used than other approaches when supporting applications modelled at a larger scale. One possibility would be to have a more generic platform that is capable of supporting both...
Article
The growing demand in construction aggregates is confronted with increasing environmental constraints. Since the average transport distances from the quarries to the consumption centres are permanently increasing, they are mainly responsible for the CO2 emissions within the construction minerals market. A macroeconomic System Dynamics model represe...
Article
The classic belief that construction minerals are available in virtually infinite quantities has been dampened in many European countries by the permanently rising difficulties in access to the resource. A growing demand in construction aggregates has to face growing social, political and environmental constraints. As a key issue of the French-Aust...
Article
The collection of ultra-pure quartz is a traditional occupation of rural populations in northeastern Madagascar to complement the traditional farming activity, namely the rice crop. In this paper, we model and simulate these phenomena in order to assess the possible impact of this complementary activity on the socio-economic situation of the popula...
Article
Full-text available
Known mainly for the richness of its biodiversity and the endemism of numerous animal and plant species, Madagascar is also famous for its considerable and varied mineral resources. Mining activities exploiting gemstones, decorative stones, ornamental stones and gold, and also industrial rocks and minerals, are scattered across the country. In this...

The collection of quartz is a traditional occupation of rural populations in northeastern Madagascar to complement the traditional farming activity, namely the rice crop. In order to assess the possible impact of this complementary activity on the socio-economic situation of the population, and in the context of sustainable development, we have mod...
Article
Full-text available
Beforehand, the concept of natural motivations (i.e.motivations related to the satisfaction of natural needs) has been generally integrated into reactive agents, and particularly to animats. In this paper, we present and discuss a generic model which introduces such notions into hybrid agents. The basis of our model is the Abraham Maslow's pyramid...

La thématique principale des recherches présentées dans le présent travail concerne la modélisation de comportement d'agents informatiques hybrides au sein de Systèmes multi-agents (SMA). Un agent hybride est un agent qui dispose à la fois de comportements réactifs et de comportements cognitifs. S'inspirant à la base d'une réflexion principalement...

This paper presents the utilization of the multi-agent platform Geamas through the Biomas application for the collective management of animal wastes. The complexity of the scenarios under study gives rise to many unpredictable behavioral schemas whose analyses necessitate a simulation approach. In the present article we describe the whole set of co...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Most of hybrid agent architectures are made by a hierarchical succession of a reactive (at a lower level) and a cognitive (at a higher level) layers. Each of these layers represents a behavior, a function, a decision, etc. Instead of using such functional layers, we propose in this paper a generic model of social hybrid agent, which is rather based...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In a multi-agent system (MAS), agents preserve their proactivity and autonomy. Consequently, one associates an independent process with each of them, but when the simulation is only on a single mono-processor computer, the performance tends to be affected because computer resources are more limited. Unlike a system of multicomputers (where generall...

modélisation des comportements d'agents est toujours un aspect important dans les travaux portant sur la conception des systèmes multi-agents. D'une manière générale, cette modélisation comportementale porte sur la mise en place d'un ensemble d'actions que l'agent devrait accomplir dans ses activités. Notre approche dans ce papier consiste à propos...

When multi-agent research is used in electronic commerce, most of time, the study relates to the negotiation. The general idea is to send agents negotiating in place of human negotiator, after preliminary allotted the appropriate behavior. The behavior depends on the type of transaction. The negotiation is however only one a ngle of vision. We shou...
