Agent-based simulation models are a powerful experimental tool for research and management in many scientific and technological fields.
D-Mason is a parallel version of Mason, a library for writing and running Agent-based simulations.
In this paper, we present a novel development of D-Mason, a decentralized communication strategy which realizes a Publish/Subscribe paradigm through a layer based on the MPI standard. We show that our communication mechanism is much more scalable and efficient than the previous centralized one.
