Sunny Winter school

by David

Start 2017 in sunny Arizona (USA) with a Winter school on modeling human decision-making in agent-based models of social-ecological systems (January 2-7). The aim of the winter school is to have participants (PhD students and postdocs) learn about the opportunities and challenges of implementing theories of human behavior in agent-based models. Participants will engage intensely with a few behavioral models, reach a deeper understanding of various theories in the social science, and develop the ability to formalize more abstract notions in a specific programming language. Participants are expected to have basic knowledge of Netlogo.

From the POLISES group, Birgit and Gunnar will be among the instructors.
