Default Last call for course on Individual based models applied to Ecology,May 2014, Barcelona, Spain

Dear colleagues,

There are a few places still available for the course "INTRODUCTION TO
for registration with reduced fee: February 28.

Instructors: Dr. Jürgen Groeneveld (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research
– UFZ, Germany) and Dr. Alexander Singer (Helmholtz Centre for Environmental
Research – UFZ, Germany).

In this course, the principles of individual based modelling will be presented.
In Ecology many patterns at the population or community level emerge from
processes, variability and interactions at the individual scale. Therefore it is
increasingly acknowledged that the basic entities in many ecological models
should be individuals. This is the aim of individual based modelling (or agent
based models).

Instructors will introduce participants to NetLogo, a development environment
and a domain specific computer language for individual based modelling. In
lectures, instructors will explain techniques to develop, analyse, test and
document individual based simulation models. Hands on session will familiarise
participants with the concepts: In small groups they will develop, implement
and analyse an individual based model to answer an ecological question.
Questions will be suggested by the instructors and will comprise applied (e.g.
sustainable forestry) and theoretical topics. Every group will present their
project and their experiences at the end of the course in a short presentation.
After the course the participants will be able to implement and analyse simple
models in NetLogo.
