Workshop on Agent-based modelling in Ecological Economics

The Sustainability Research Center SustBusy at ESCP Europe Business School is offering a Research Workshop on  “Agent-based modelling (ABM) in Ecological Economics – A useful tool or just a fancy gadget?” on May 20th and 21st 2016 in Berlin.

The workshop shall investigate the potential of ABM for Ecological Economics. Are they worth investing in and learn how to program? Are the results helpful or just ad hoc outcomes of toy models? Can ABM be useful in the context of Ecological Economics or are they unsuitable to portray the link to nature?

We would like to discuss these and further questions with you in a workshop format with high-profile keynote talks, oral presentations with discussants, and time for debate.

Deadline for submission will be March 15th 2016.

We explicitly encourage PhD students as well as advanced scientists to apply!

Please find more information on the website and feel free to spread the information in your network!

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Berlin!
