Continuous-time microsimulation is an important method for predicting demographic changes in the next decades. However, these modeling and simulation studies face various challenges. One is to integrate adequately dynamics at different organizational levels, i.e. at micro level (e.g., individuals), and at macro level (e.g., population), and linking those dynamics in continuous time and discrete space. With more expressive models, demography has started moving from data- to hypothesis-driven development of individual-based models, which impacts modeling and simulation processes and methods used. This work aims at addressing various challenges of continuous-time agent-based simulation in demography.
