Humboldt State short course on individual/agent-based modeling

Recommended Posts

Steve Railsback, Volker Grimm, and Steve Lytinen will conduct our eighth
summer short course on individual-based (agent-based) modeling, July 30 -
August 3, 2018, at Humboldt State University. The course is intended
primarily for university faculty and instructors interested in teaching
their own modeling courses, but we also welcome participants interested
mainly in research applications.

The course will be based on the textbook "Agent-based and Individual-based
Modeling: A Practical Introduction" by Railsback and Grimm:
http://www.railsback-grimm-abm-book.com/ . The instructors are the
textbook's authors and Steve Lytinen, professor of Computer Science at
DePaul University. The course's main goal will be to introduce participants
to both the software - NetLogo - and the modeling concepts in the book, to
the point that they can then teach themselves and others how to become
productive modelers. We will focus especially on developing NetLogo
programming skills, via exercises and projects with a high level of
instructor interaction.

The course will be held at Humboldt State, on northern California's
beautiful redwood coast. The fee is expected to be $600, which includes
instruction and materials, social events, and lunches. Participants will
provide their own transportation to and lodging in Arcata; low-cost campus
lodging will be available.

Applications are being accepted through May 5th. Additional information and
the short application form are at: http://www.humboldt.edu/ibm/
