The Modelling Social Systems discussion group is based at the University of Southampton (UK). We are researchers brought together by a common interest in using agent-based simulations (and other forms of computational and mathematical modelling) to look at the social world.
Our meetings involve a variety of activities: critiquing a paper, presenting preliminary work, brainstorming on a modelling problem, etc. (see the motivation page for more details). All are welcome to attend; if you'd like to be on our mailing list, email the list owner.
We meet on Tuesdays at 4:00pm. In the past we met in Building 1, room 2025, but currently (10 June onward) we've been relocated to the DTC common room on the ground floor of Building 16. For those who don't have badge access to building 16, someone should be standing outside around 4:00pm to let you in. (Or just follow someone in.)
We do not always have a specific speaker nominated in advance, but if you'd like to come along and talk about a modelling issue let us know (Stuart Rossiter is the primary contact). Our most productive sessions have been centred around someone discussing a model that they're currently planning to build.
This group is one of a number of collaboration initiatives by the ECS Agents, Interaction and Complexity (AIC) group. All group meetings are included on the events calendar (embedded in the group home page and on the Events Calendar sub-page).
