Time is the most important characteristic of geospatial information: simulation extends our spatial view into the future!
Simulation models help to gain a better understanding of complex, living systems. In this winter school, offered by UNIGIS Salzburg, you will get hands-on experience with the concepts and methods of spatially-explicit agent-based modelling and Cellular Automata and their applicationto explore complex systems.
Models will target and integrate a range of domains and application areas in ecological and social sciences. Supported by experienced modellers, you will develop your modelling skills step-by-step. After the winter school, you will be able to conceptualise, implement and validate your own models to conduct research on complex systems and to solve applied management problems.
In the winter school, you will model real-world questions in interdisciplinary groups. While we provide case studies, you are encouraged to work on your own research problems. During a field trip we will visit the Deptarment’s Landscape Lab close to Salzburg and enjoy a beautiful winter day in the surroundings of Salzburg.
UNIGIS students and alumni are eligible for the reduced fee.
