With funding from the NEH program Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities, the College of Liberal Arts and the Complex Systems Institute at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte are pleased to announce their summer 2011 institute on Computer Simulations in the Humanities. The institute will be held June 1-17, 2011 with a follow-up event June 1-3, 2012.
During the institute, a variety of simulation techniques will be addressed, including complex adaptive systems, agent based modeling, and connectionist networks. Humanists selected from a range of disciplines will work not only with technical experts, but also with other humanists already familiar with simulation methods. Advanced graduate students are welcome to apply.
More information and application instructions can be found on the Institute’s Call for Proposals Website. Deadline for applications is November 15, 2010.
