Models of Human Behaviour Workshop

2nd November 2007, 09:00 to 3rd November 2007, 12:30, 32 Old Elvet, Room 113

This one-and-a-half day workshop will treat problems of scaling up human behaviour from the individual to larger entities (such as the city). This will include scholars who model individual human behaviour at one end of the scale, to those whose interest is producing models of the cities and city systems. Themes will include the question of scaling up from small to large scale processes as well as how one can tackle the shear quantity of data required when one scales up from small to very large systems. The workshop will also examine other ways of modelling human behaviour (or their results), depending upon the range of interest of the speakers.

This workshop will be of interest to Social scientists and researchers interested in social evolution and in modelling complex social behaviours.
