"Teaching Individual-based Modeling" short course, July 27-31, 2015

Recommended Posts

Humboldt State University will again offer a one-week short course on

individual-based modeling, in July 2015, with instructors Steve Railsback,

Volker Grimm, and Steve Lytinen. The course is directed primarily at

college-level faculty and staff interested in teaching individual-based (or

"agent-based") modeling classes based on the textbook by Railsback and Grimm


http://www.railsback-grimm-abm-book.com/ ). However, we should also be able

to accommodate others interested mainly in research applications.


The course is interdisciplinary and open to people in all fields, although

the instructors' experience is mainly in ecology. Topics include theoretical

and methodological issues in individual-based science, but a major goal will

be developing enough experience with the NetLogo software platform for

participants to subsequently teach themselves and others how to implement

and analyze scientific models in NetLogo.


The class will be on the Humboldt State campus in Arcata, CA. Low-cost

dormitory housing will be available.


Because the class size is limited, there is a simple application process.
