SICSA M&A Workshop on Computational Ecology

Date(s) - 21/10/2015
All Day

Informatics Forum

Workshop on Computational Ecology, Wednesday 21 October 2015 at the Informatics Forum, University of Edinburgh

The objective of this workshop is to bring together SICSA researchers who are currently actively working on, or interested in, developing dynamic models of ecological systems using formal modelling techniques from computer science. The workshop should also be of interest to SICSA researchers who are working on formal modelling techniques and might see this as an opportunity to learn more about potential applications in ecology, and colleagues from other disciplines (ecology, mathematical biology or bio-statistics) who might be intrigued to see what formal computational models have to offer.

Invited Speakers

Professor David Sumpter, Upsalla University
Title: How mathematical models help us understand ecological and social systems

Iain D Couzin, Princeton Unviersity
Title: Collective Sensing and Decision-Making in Animal Groups: From Fish Schools to Primate Societies
