Agent-Based Modeling Bootcamp for Health Researchers 2012

Materials from the bootcamp (enriched by supporting materials by the same instructor) may be found here.

Timing: The Agent-Based Modeling Bootcamp for Health Researchers 2012 ran August 20-25, 2012.

Registration:Our on-line registration system is now available. Please note that we do allow for contingent reservations (e.g. reservations with the understanding that it is conditional on the participant securing funding on their side; please indicate the conditional nature of the reservation in the "Additional Information" field of the registration form).

Coverage: A preliminary syllabus is available. Please note that the updated bootcamp will cover version 6.7 of AnyLogic; additional topics will be covered in the syllabus, based on feedback from registrants prior to the bootcamp. During the bootcamp, some sessions will be additionally be kept open for discussion to address issues of priority to registrants.

Reference materials:Visitors planning to be or considering being participants in this summer's bootcamp may find it useful to refer to lectures from the ongoing MIT graduate course on Agent-Based Modeling for Health currently being taught by the instructor, as well as a variety of materials (including exercises, lecture & tutorial slides, audio recordings, and videos and/or screencasts, etc.) from last year's version of the bootcamp, which ran August 22-27th, 2011. While this year's bootcamp is anticipated to include some additional material not currently represented in those courses, much of the material that can be seen in those courses will be of direct relevance for the bootcamp. Early review of the material already posted would allow bootcamp participants to come away with a deeper appreciation for subtleties in the application of AnyLogic for Agent-Based modeling.

Thank you for your interest and patience while the site is being prepared.

Material from other lectures and tutorials by the same instructor (Nathaniel Osgood) can be accessed here.
