	%X Online Communities are an example of sociallyaware,
self-organising, complex adaptive computing systems.
The multi-agent systems (MAS) paradigm coordinated by
self-organisation mechanisms has been used as an effective
way for the simulation and modeling of such systems. In this
paper, we propose a model for simulating an online health
community using a situated multi-agent system approach,
governed by the co-evolution of the social and spatial
organisations of the agents.
