CfP: Second Workshop on Integrating Qualitative and Quantitative Evidence Using Social Simulation

Center for Policy Modelling, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
November 21st and 22nd 2019

OVERVIEW:

The main aim of this workshop is to design collectively a strategy for structuring and developing the field, while stimulating research and technological advancements on this topic, providing a forum for the reporting and discussion of current approaches, and facilitating the development of subsequent collaborative work within the field and across fields. This is a 2-day event following-up the Lorentz Center workshop on “Integrating qualitative and quantitative evidence using social simulation”, April 2019 (http://bit.ly/2niwYB8).

We invite all participants of the Lorentz workshop as well as other interested persons to join this follow-up workshop in Manchester; more news: http://cfpm.org/qual2rule/. The event will provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • Present their work progresses, results or preliminary drafts of their work and receive feedback from other participants;
  • Discuss the next steps i.e. continuing the planned work and/or initiating new work (e.g. grant application, focused publication, further workshops, journal special issue etc.).
