Members of the recently formed iSPER Modelling and Simulation for Social Science Research Initiative held their inaugural event in Plymouth University in July 2017.
Research Initiative Lead, Jonathan Moizer (pictured above) introduced the event and outlined the key research activities the initiative is planning to undertake as well as its aspirations for the future. The membership - comprising researchers at different stages of their research careers, from doctoral students through to full professors - were in full agreement on the aspiration to engage in, involve others in and disseminate good simulation and modelling practice.
Central to the event were the four members of the research initiative who presented their simulation and modelling work to colleagues. Details on each of the speakers and their presentations are below.
