Summer School 2014

“Spatial Structures and Dynamics
Methods and Tools for exploring Spatial Systems”

14th – 19th July 2014

Florence – Italy

École d'Été 2014

Presentation

Lecture topics of this Summer School addressed current trends and needs for the exploration of spatial systems. Theories, concepts and methods referred to various disciplines dealing with spatial systems, from humanities to computer science and physics.

A very large panel of topics were addressed: agent-based modelling, cellular automata, companion modeling, complex networks, complexity, geosimulation, multilevel modeling, spatio-temporal modeling and spatial statistics.
