Modelling Spheres of Interaction – Mosaic – International Summer School at Kiel University
05-09 September 2016
At Kiel University there is a growing interdisciplinary community which strives to establish an integrative concept and culture of modelling. The intention behind Mosaic is to convey the Kiel spirit of interdisciplinary modelling and to facilitate knowledge transfer on basic theories, methods and techniques in spatio-temporal modelling.
In this summer school we will introduce participants to the basics of modelling, mathematics, trends, boundaries, movement, interaction and networks.
The Summer School focuses on interaction as a key concept in social life, and on methods for reconstructing and modeling spheres of interaction at different spatial and temporal scales. Students will learn an innovative approach, used in recent studies, for modelling spheres of interaction. The course will cover a variety of theories and concepts that will enable students to apply this method to further regions, material groups, and time periods. The course is divided into individual lessons presented by experts, thus providing a diverse overview of approaches.
