Registration is now open for the Workshop on Agent-Based Modeling, that is being organised by the TU/e Center for Humans & Technology and 4TU
Workshop on Agent-Based Modeling by Paul Smaldino
Students will learn about agent-based modeling and how it is applied to study social phenomena in human and animal societies. Agent-based models are widely used to help us understand a wide range of topics, including but not limited to cooperation, social learning, collective problem solving, opinion dynamics and polarization, segregation, the spread of disease, and the emergence of social norms. In this one-day workshop, students will receive an introduction to the philosophy of modeling and to some key models in the life and social sciences, and get hands on experience writing and analyzing simulation models using NetLogo, a widely used software package for agent-based modeling.
The detailed programme will be announced soon.
The Workshop on Agent-Based Modeling will take place on the campus of the Eindhoven University of Technology in Eindhoven, in the IPO building, 0.26.
Participation is free, but registration is required, and covers lunch and coffee breaks at the event.
