4th Summer School of the European Social Simulation Association (ESSA)
Hamburg University of Technology, July 15-19, 2013
The Institute of Accounting and Management Control invites you
to participate at the 4th ESSA Summer School at the Hamburg
University of Technology. After three successful ESSA summer
schools we want to continue giving introductions to agent-based
modeling & simulation.
The ESSA summer school provides an introduction in research
process, methods and tools for applying agent-based simulation
in the social sciences. Lectures and tutorials from experts in
the field are complemented by daily group discussions. By this,
the understanding of the topics presented should be fostered.
Furthermore, the group discussions provide the opportunity to
progress in own simulation projects in a constructive
atmosphere. To ensure the effectiveness, the participants are
asked to state question they would like to solve within the
summer school before the workshop.
After the summer school, participants can expect to have
absorbed knowledge about simulation methodology.
The summer school welcomes postgraduate students, post-doctoral
researchers and professionals.
Please send a brief CV, a summary of your current research and
the questions you would like to discuss as attachment to an
email with the subject line "ESSA Summer School application" to
by March 31st, 2013 the latest.
Notification of acceptance/rejection will be send out by April
