The UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health, Queen’s University Belfast has joined forces with the Centre for Research in Social Simulation, University of Surrey, to deliver a course on agent-based modelling. 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. You can read more about the course by clicking here.
