Agent-Based Modelling & Simulation for Business and Marketing

After the success of the First Intensive Course on Agent-Based Modelling & Simulation for Business and Marketing held in July at the University of Sydney, we announce a two week summer school on Complex Systems Research and Methods in Business and Biology (CSBB) on Heron Island, Queensland, Australia from January 16 to 27, 2012. The summer school follows on from previous complex systems summer schools held in conjunction with CosNet, the Australian Complex Systems Network, at Charles Sturt University by the Centre for Research in Complex Systems. The summer school celebrates, informs, educates and explores the nature, meaning, scope and applications of complex systems science in business, social and biological systems. We will begin with a three day intensive course and refresher on NetLogo, followed by a series of workshops and lectures on aspects of complex systems theory, research and methods. Participants will be assisted in the development and implementation of their own research projects. The University of Sydney Business School is the foundation sponsor for the course is and several eminent scientists from Australia, Europe and North American have already committed to participate. The course will be held at a research station on Heron Island, which is a coral cay located near the Tropic of Capricorn in the Great Barrier Reef, 72 km north-east of Gladstone, Queensland, Australia. The course is open to research students, academics and others interested in learning more about complex systems science and methods. The website for application is now open and the first round of applications closes October 1. There will be several scholarships offered for suitably qualified candidates to join the course.
