LABMRG: Leicester Agent Based Modelling Reading Group


This is provisional page for the newly forming Leicester Agent Based Modelling Reading Group, initially (but not necessarily ultimately) within the University of Leicester. We envisage that the group will hold events for those who are interested in ABM at all levels (both in terms of expertise and academic role). If you would like your name and department added here (and email address with your permission) please contact one of the Interim Convenors below.

We look forward to meeting you.
