Agent Based Modelling mini-conference


The UK-ABM mini-conference is taking place November 27th (10:00 – 16:15)

Venue: Heritage Room, The Medical School, Royal Hallamshire Hospital, University of Sheffield, Sheffield.

This mini-conference will showcase a wide range of topics in agent-based modelling, bringing together leading researchers from the Universities of Sheffield, Leeds, and York to discuss latest advances in the simulation of complex systems. Our event brings together academics and researchers from various disciplines, encouraging discussion and a lively debate. Through this event, we aim to grow collaborations that will have a substantial contribution to future in silico research.

ABM 2017 is sponsored by Insigneo (Institute for in silico Medicine) and RSE (Research Software Engineering) Sheffield. A summary list of the titles, abstracts and slides of the talks is available. Check out the collection of scientific posters to find out the broad spectrum of research fields employing ABMs.
