Agent Based Modelling

The UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health, Queen’s University Belfast is excited to announce a new course on agent-based modelling, specifically targeted to public health researchers. Agent-based modelling is becoming increasingly popular in public health.  Applications include intervention development, understanding complex public health systems and evaluating the public health impact of public health interventions. 

During the 3 day course, participants will build a model of a public health intervention using NetLogo, as well as learn about the theory of computer simulation for complex systems.  Cost is £200 for students (with some bursaries available), £400 for academics and £800 for government or industry. Please contact Georgina Holmes at G.Holmes@qub.ac.uk for more information.
