MISS-ABMS 2014: Multi-platforms International Summer School on Agent-Based Modeling & Simulation

When: 8th – 19th of September

Where: Montpellier, France

Application Deadline: 30th of June, 2014


We are pleased to announce the 4th edition of MISS-ABMS, a 2-week training course on implementing computer agent-based models for renewable natural resources management.


During the first week, participants will be exposed to three different platforms: Netlogo, Gama and Cormas. The emphasis of the training is set on participatory modelling and simulation, most of the trainers being involved in development of the Companion Modelling approach. To develop their own prototype ABMs, participants will form small groups (2-4) to work on stylized models referring to a shared theme.


Fees: 500 Euros for PhD Candidates and 1000 Euros for researchers and academic staff. Fees include tuition, refreshments and a gala dinner. Travel lunches and accommodation are not included.
