July 27-August 4, 2020
Humboldt State University, Arcata, California USA
The primary instructors will be Volker Grimm and Steve Railsback, authors of the 2005 monograph “Individual-based Modeling and Ecology” and the 2012 and 2019 textbook Agent-based and Individual-based Modeling: A Practical Introduction. The instructors are co-authors of more than 100 journal articles on scientific agent-based modeling. Specialized lectures will be provided by Humboldt State faculty or others with relevant expertise.
