Summer Schools

ESSA summer schools provide an introduction to agent-based modelling & simulation. Over the course of one week, participants learn about the research process, methods and tools. Learning formats include lectures, practical tutorials and participation in vivid discussions. Building on the experience of the ZUMA Social Simulation Workshops organised by Nigel Gilbert and Klaus G. Troitzsch (1999-2009), the ESSA summer schools continue to increase the understanding of agent-based simulations and aid in tackling researchers' specific challenges. The summer schools invite postgraduate students, doctoral and post-doctoral researchers and professionals.
