Short course in individual/agent-based modelling

Steve Railsback and Volker Grimm will for the 4th year offer a one-week short course on individual-based modeling. The primary targets of the course are professors and instructors interested in teaching their own modeling courses, but we may also be able to accommodate scientists and graduate students interested in modeling for their research.

The course will be based on Railsback & Grimm’s 2012 text “Agent-Based and Individual-Based Modeling, A Practical Introduction” (Princeton). Humboldt State University’s Office of Extended Education organizes the course. The class will be limited to about 25 participants to ensure ample personal attention and a productive experience.

This year the course is scheduled especially (but certainly not exclusively) to accommodate Europeans: it will be held September 15-19, 2014, at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ, Leipzig, Germany (Volker Grimm’s home institution).
