Dear all,

Unlock the power of Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) with our upcoming five-day course on "AGENT-BASED MODELLING USING NETLOGO" from July 29 to August 2, 2024. This immersive workshop is hosted at the Faculty of Biology and Environmental Protection, University of Lodz, Poland.

Overview: Dive into the principles and practice of ABM, exploring how the dynamics of complex systems emerge from individual components and their environment. This course combines lectures, programming tutorials, exercises, and project work.

What You'll Learn:

  1. Design, implement, and evaluate ABMs
  2. Introductory instruction in NetLogo, a powerful software platform for ABMs
  3. Application of ABMs in natural and social sciences
  4. Real-world management advantages of ABMs

Resources: Recommended Texts:

  1. "Agent-Based and Individual-Based Modeling: A Practical Introduction" by Railsback SF, Grimm V (2019)
  2. "Individual-based Modeling and Ecology" by Grimm V, Railsback SF (2005)

Program Highlights:

  • Day 1: Introduction to IBMs and ABMs, NetLogo basics, and ODD protocol
  • Day 2: Design concepts, pattern-oriented modelling, software testing
  • Day 3: Stochasticity, adaptive behavior, and Project 1
  • Day 4: Pattern-oriented modelling example, analysis of IBMs, and Project 2
  • Day 5: Project 2 presentations, NetLogo gadgets, and course feedback
