The University of Sydney is pleased to announce the first intensive course on agent-based modelling in Sydney, Australia. The course will bring a group of advanced graduate students together with academics interested in developing ABM skills for an intensive four-week course on ABM and its application to marketing, management and the social sciences more broadly. The course will be led by Professor David Earnest, Old Dominion University, based on a similar course he offers there. The course combines lectures with hands-on experience in lab sessions, building simulations of business and social phenomena. Upon completion of this course, participants will not only be familiar with the theoretical and methodological foundations of ABM, they will be able to implement their own simulations in the programming language NetLogo to support their research.
