From September 12th to 23rd the “Multi-platform International Summer School on Agent-Based Modelling & Simulation for Renewable Resources Management” (MISS-ABMS) took place at Agropolis International in Montpellier, France. Marie took part of it and very much enjoyed the combination of theoretical lectures, case-study examples, practical sessions and a group project, all supported by established experts in the Agent-based modelling (ABM) field. At the same time, the summer school introduced 3 open-source platforms: NetLogo, Cormas and Gama. Of these, the participants chose one for their practical sessions and group project. The summer school is a yearly joint initiative by Agropolis International, IRSTEA, CIRAD, CNRS, Université de Rouen and Université Toulouse Capitole. More information can be found here.
