Students will learn about agent-based modeling and how it is applied to study social phenomena in human and animal societies. Topics for which agent-based models are relevant include cooperation, social learning, collective problem solving, opinion dynamics and polarization, segregation, the spread of disease, and the emergence of social norms. Students will receive introductions to relevant formal theories in the life and social sciences, and get hands on experience writing and analyzing simulation models using NetLogo, a widely used software package for agent-based modeling. 

Monday-Thursday classes will take place between 9 and 16 at the IMC meeting room. Friday will be dedicated to one-to-one discussions of how to apply the methods to the participants' research.
