The paper “An Agent-Based Model of Procrastination” by Ruurdje Procee (UU), Bart Kamphorst (UU), Arlette van Wissen (VU) and John-Jules Meyer (UU) has been accepted for publication in the proceedings of the 21st European Conference on Artificial Intelligence, 2014.

The paper presents a new agent-based model of procrastination that integrates insights from economic models about the dynamics of procrastination with psychological concepts that can help explain the behavior on an individual level. The aim is that the model may serve as the basis for the development of an e-coaching system that can offer tailored support to people who struggle with procrastination.
