Individual based models using R (and netlogo) (IBMS01)

1st April 2019 - 5th April 2019

£275.00 – £510

Course Overview:

This workshop will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn how (1) to understand; (2) run simulations of readily available Individual Based Models (IBMs); (3) analyze the outputs of IBMs; (4) parameterize IBMs, and (5) code relatively basic IBMs in R and NetLogo.

Examples and applications will include cases from diverse domains and scientific disciplines such as social sciences, biology, and environmental sciences.

Intended Audience

This workshop is ideal for any scientists seeking an introduction as well as functional use in terms of parameterizing, simulating, and analyzing outputs of IBMs; some moderate skills of programming and own coding will also be acquired.

This course will suite attendees from a diverse range of scientific disciplines such as biology, ecology, psychology, economics, or education. No prior knowledge of programming in R or Netlogo are required. However basic to moderate prior R knowledge is required (loading data, loading R packages, basic R environment and basic R commands).
