Workshop: Spatially-explicit complex systems modelling

News: Nov 07, 2016

On December 12-14, in the lab room at Humanisten, Renströmsgatan 6, University of Gothenburg, there will be a workshop on spatially-explicit complex systems modelling for the historical sciences.

This workshop will provide an introduction to methods in simulation modelling using GIS and complex systems theory. Participants will learn how to use GIS software and the modelling package Netlogo to generate spatially-explicit simulations for multi-disciplinary applications. Topics will include agent-based modelling, cellular automata, network models, and processing GIS data as inputs into models. The workshop will be a mix of lecture material, pre-prepared example models, and also development of models relevant to participant’s field of expertise.

The workshop is tutored by Scott Heckbert, an environmental economist and modeller with Alberta Innovates, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Geomatics Engineering from University of Melbourne in 2010, and today applies simulation modelling of social-ecological systems using agent-based models, cellular automata, and network models of people and the environment. Heckbert builds spatially explicit simulations of complex human-environment interactions to find novel solutions to environmental problems. The workshop is open for researchers as well as Ph.D.- and M.A.-students.

*To participate in the workshop please send me a note at christian.isendahl@gu.se as soon as possible, and no later than November 20. The number of participants is restricted and applications are accepted on a first come first served basis.*
