Short Course on Social-Ecological Modelling and Agent-based Simulation, November, 11th – 15th, 2019 at Curtin University, Perth, Australia

This short course is held annually at different universities in Africa and the U.S. and we have been asked whether it would be possible to run it in Australia. We therefore would like potential participants to express their interest.

Amongst other topics, this interdisciplinary course gives an introduction to:
  • Moving from the research question to a conceptual model,
  • Implementing a conceptual model using the agent-based approach, and
  • Deriving value from simulation runs.

Participation is recommended for PhD students, postdocs, lecturers and scientists from a variety of disciplines, including:

  • Environmental and biological sciences,
  • Socio-ecological and –economic sciences,
  • Computer and Data science,
  • Sustainable development,
  • Smart cities, and
  • Epidemiology and public health.

Mars BBQ

Last week the MARS team got together for a socializing event. We had a barbecue to celebrate the end of the past semester.
As special guests we had Gabriel and Devotha from South Africa, who spend their semester at the MARS lab.

Below are a few pictures.
