Agents in Archaeology Workshop 2011, Archived Version
Archeology has embraced the topic of agent-based modelling (ABM) as a powerful tool for understanding, formalizing and testing theories.
This workshop is aimed at students and researchers in the archaeological sciences interested in the use of agent-based simulations in archaeological research. It will be centered on practical tutorials which will provide a basic understanding if how to use the free software package NetLogo and to build simple agent-based models to address research questions in this field. Lectures will cover theoretical background and recent research results. Topics include:
The venue was be held at the Museum of Natural History Vienna, 3rd and 4th March 2011.
