Course on Agent-based Modeling and Simulation at the Max Planck Institut for Demographic Research

The International Advanced Studies in Demography (IDEM) program is currently accepting applications for an intensive course on Agent-based Modeling and Simulation, to be held 20-30 October 2014 at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany.

The course aims at introducing students to agent-based modeling and simulation and offers four important skills: simulation skills, an agent-based modeling language, software skills (NetLogo), as well as strategies for designing agent-based models and implementing simulation experiments. This course is jointly organized by the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, the Vienna Institute of Demography and the University of Southampton.

There is no tuition fee. However, students are expected to pay their own transportation and living costs. A limited number of scholarships are available on a competitive basis for outstanding candidates and for those applicants who might otherwise not be able to come.

The application deadline is 20 August 2014.
