Dear fellow PhD students,
Did you ever feel as the only agent-based modeller in your research institute? Do you wonder whether to use Netlogo or any other ABM platform? Are you struggling with writing your ODD? Do you want to know in which journals you can publish your ABM? Many before you did too… This is why this year, we are again organising this PhD Colloquium especially designed to tackle the questions that you always wanted but never dared to ask!
The aim of this Colloquium is to have a low entry – which does not imply low level – interactive, single day event for and by PhD students. It will be a unique opportunity for PhD students to speak, practice your presentation, shoot ideas, and ask basic and/or difficult modelling questions in a relaxed atmosphere. You will also have the chance to learn about the review process and of course, to get to know each other! Additionally, we will invite some senior experts in ABM to give you further insights and feedback.
Every student submitting will be asked to review the work of another student. Submissions for the Social Simulation Conference can also be submitted for the Colloquium.
The PhD Colloquium will take place on Monday 23rd of September 2019, the 1st day of the Social Simulation Conference 2019 in Mainz.
We hope to welcome you in Mainz!
Michelle Haurand and Demian Frank
