This summer school is aimed at social scientists working on contemporary
and historical cases of population expansion and innovation diffusion.
The program provides an overview of discrete and continuous methods
used to model different kinds of dispersal processes in time
and space and will be centered on practical tutorials
which will provide a basic understanding of how to use free software
packages such as NetLogo and Octave to address research questions
in this field. Lectures will cover the theoretical background and
recent research results. The summer school will be held on University
College London Campus.
