The Art of Modelling

Monday 30 August - Friday 10 September 2021
Modelling is a crucial part of today's science. Among other things, models are used for assessing sensitivity of systems to disturbances or changes in external factors, and for predictions of future system states. This course provides an introduction to modelling with a focus on systems analysis using dynamic simulation models.

Spatial Sampling

Monday 20 - Thursday 23 September 2021
In this course, some of the concepts that underlie the optimization of spatial sampling will be introduced. These include methods to ensure good spatial coverage by a sample, methods to select an optimal grid spacing for geostatistical mapping and complex methods of combinatorial optimization. The course takes place in hotel "De Bosrand" in Ede and includes accommodation.
