In July 2011 the University of Sydney hosted the first intensive course on agent-based modelling (ABM) in Sydney, Australia. The course brought a group of advanced graduate students together with academics interested in developing ABM skills. Over a period of four weeks, participants learned about ABM and its application to marketing, management and the social sciences in general. The course was led by Professor David Earnest, Old Dominion University, based on a similar course he offers there. He combined lectures with hands-on experience in lab sessions, building simulations of business and social phenomena. The course aimed to familiarize participants with the theoretical and methodological foundations of ABM, but also enable them to implement their own simulations in the programming language NetLogo to support their research.
