SimBully: A ‘Bullying in Schools’ Simulation

In this paper we describe SimBully, a simulator that shows the impact that peer and personal rules can have on incidences of
bullying in a school environment. The user can add and remove rules, and add or eliminate characters from the environment and see how this affects the bullying situation (maybe bullying decreases or other bullies emerge). In this way, the user can study the impact of certain rules on the bullying behavior.
