2020 Summer School on Methodology of Computational Social Science

Schedule

 

Date: Monday 27th of July - Thursday 30th July 2020

Venue: VooV meeting (腾讯会议)

Hosted by Marco Agriculture Research Institute, Huazhong Agricultural University

 

u Overall learning outcomes. After this summer school, participants should be able to:

- explain what ABM is and how it can be used in social simulation

- know how to get started with model development using NetLogo

- understand the role of the ODD protocol in documenting and designing agent-based models

- think about own research questions and domain from the perspective of computational social science

- evaluate different ways to use ABM to support research

- know where to go next

 

u Evenings are for further self-study and reflection on the application of coursework on own research projects

 

u All times are in China Standard Time (GMT+8)

 

u Lectures are 2 hour time slots (120 minutes)
