Interest in Oxford in agent-based modelling continues to grow, so we thought it is time to have another informal gathering to:
· see who’s working on what sorts of problems
· find out what software and packages are being used
· see who has what expertise
· create some new collaborations
· assist those who are new to the technique
· reinvigorate the network of existing informal contacts
This time we are very lucky that Uri Wilensky, the ‘father’ of NetLogo, visiting from Northwestern University will join us.
Everyone is welcome whether you’re an undergraduate, postgraduate, research fellow, or academic staff. It doesn’t matter which department you are in, what topics you’re interested in, or what level of knowledge or experience you have.
We are offering 5-minute presentation slots to anyone who wants to discuss thoughts on ABM – particularly problems that might be well-suited for ABM or work-in-progress. This time we will be strict about the 5 minute limit but are encouraging people who may just want to ask questions to sign up for a slot. Please send email to email@example.com
Date: Friday 14 November
Time: 2:00pm – 4:00pm (though in previous meetings some stayed past 5pm)
Venue: Future of Humanity Institute, Suite 1, Littlegate House (1st floor, on the left)
16/17 St Ebbe’s Street, Oxford, OX1 1PT

Let your colleagues know about this.
We hope to see you on the fourteenth of November.
