2018 Dresden short course in agent-based modeling


The 11th annual Dresden University of Technology summer course in agent-based modeling is now accepting applications. This year we again offer an intermediate course, intended primarily for graduate students and researchers who have been developing their own models and seek guidance on finishing, analyzing, and doing science with the models. Topics will include debugging, parameterization, sensitivity and robustness analysis, and publication.

The course is limited to 25 participants and provides an intense, intimate experience with highly experienced instructors. It will be 9-17 August, 2018, in a small village outside Dresden, Germany. The instructors will be Uta Berger, J├╝rgen Groeneveld, Steven Railsback, and Robert Schlicht.

The course is not specific to any particular software platform or scientific discipline. The instructors are most experienced in biological sciences and the NetLogo platform, but encourage participation by those with other backgrounds.

Applications are being taken until 16 March. See: https://tu-dresden.de/bu/umwelt/forst/ww/bsa/courses-workshops/summerschool
