Keywords: Construct, multi-agent simulation, dynamic network analysis, agent-based modeling, information diffusion, belief diffusion, agent-based simulation, modeling, and simulation

This technical report provides users and researchers information on the configuration and use of Construct version 5.3.X. Construct is the CASOS's agent-based simulation software for dynamic network and information diffusion in complex socio-technical systems. The report provides a quick start guide to Construct, a detailed discussion of its configuration, and use through a sample problem and virtual experiment configuration exemplar, and a set of appendices with additional useful information. This document is both an introduction to Construct for casual modelers as well as a reference guide for researchers, modelers, and simulationists.
