Synthetic data meets simulation workshop - last call for participants

Date: 22nd October 2010 10AM - 4PM
Venue: University of Manchester

A workshop to explore synergies between synthetic data generation and agent-based modelling.

This workshop has been conceived to explore whether research in both fields could be mutually informative and whether the techniques, methods and data products of each could enhance the other. Some ideas that may be worth exploring include: the use of synthetic data to assign properties to agents so that they possess the multivariate properties of the population of interest; and the use of agent based models to enhance longitudinal aspects of synthetic data (which may well have been generated cross-sectionally).

The workshop is free to attend. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Register here: http://www.simian.ac.uk/courses/course-registration
