Prüfungsinformationen

Prüfungsmethode/n

Short oral presentation (20 min.) and a paper of 12 pages at maximum (not including index, references, appendix...).

Prüfungsinhalt/e

To each examinee a research paper employingagent-based modelling will be assigned.

The oral presentation is intended to give a shortoverview about the research question and the agent-based model in that paper.

The paper should in depth Show/discuss how theresearch question is captured by the agent-based model employed in the researchpaper.

Beurteilungskriterien/-maßstäbe

Attendance of at least 75%.

For the presentation and the paper:

  • correctness and clarity (i.e., are the key ideas of the research paper correctly and concisely captured and presented).

For the paper additionally:

  • Elaboration of how the agent-based model reflects the research question of the paper.
