Category Theory represents a robust mathematical formalism for the study of systems, including system elements, coupling, structure, behavior and morphism1. These properties are also fundamental in the study and practice of Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation (ABMS).

The purpose of this presentation is to provide a very elementary, introductory overview of the application of a category-theoretic approach to ABMS. This approach is applied to a real-world biomedical problem domain involving emergent properties of intercellular interaction in Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome.

The objective is to raise awareness of the value of this approach and to demonstrate the representation of the universal properties of this methodology as a scientific formalism

Keywords: category theory, agent-based modeling and simulation
