The web site for the ESSA Summer School 2012 is open.


ESSA Summer School 2012

Following the successful first and second ESSA Summer Schools on Social Simulation, held respectively in Brescia, Italy, in September 2010 and in Guildford, UK, in July 2011, this third edition will be hosted by the University of Toulouse 1 Capitole, Toulouse, France, in collaboration with the IRIT laboratory.

The Summer school is aimed at those who have a basic understanding of social simulation and are taking their first steps in agent-based modelling.

The programme will consist of two lectures per day from experienced modellers, and one tutorial session led by experienced researchers where participants can acquire practice on agent-based simulation platform and social network analysis tools. Moreover several timeslots are planned in order to discuss about participants' projects and research questions.

By the end of the Summer School, students can expect to have absorbed a great deal of 'tacit' knowledge about how to go about model building, as well as having had opportunities to discuss their research with experts and peers.

The Summer School welcomes postgraduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and professionals.
