Antwerp – Individual-based Modeling in Epidemiology

Course link:

University of Antwerp five-day course: Individual-based Modeling in Epidemiology

Individual-based models (IBMs), also frequently referred to as agent-based models, are a relatively new class of models that can be used to gain insight into the population dynamics of complex systems that emerge from the characteristics and interactions of individuals in the population.

This course aims to give participants the skills to design, implement, and analyse IBMs with practical applications in epidemiology. The emphasis of the course will be on the process of designing, testing and analysing IBMs to address complex questions in epidemiology and not on the technical aspects of writing computer programs.
