News & future events
the new models currently being developed in the Simpop project : MARIUS, SimpopNet and the China-India model, have been added.
MARIUS deals with sytem of cities in Russia, SimpopNEt deals with co-evolution between transportation networks and the hierarchy system of cities.
China-India Model is pretty self-eplanatory.

Urban Systems Modeling: advances from GeoDiverCity and MECHANICITY ERC programmes (Satellite of ECCS 2013)
On the September 19th, 2013 was held a satellite meeting during the European Conference on Complex System (ECCS, http://www.eccs13.eu/ ) in Barcelona.
This meeting was set up for two research teams wanting to compare their experiences, GeoDiverCity and MECHANICITY, two projects founded by an advanced ERC Grant. Both are about spatial modelling of urban systems with a specific interest in complex systems approaches.
Covered topics included : Urban systems as complex systems, scaling methods, simulation models of urban systems, validation methods for multi-agents models, development of simulation platforms, spatio-temporal modeling of social systems.
The full program of the satellite can be accessed here.
The 18th European Colloquium on Theoretical and Quantitative Geography (ECTQG) was held in Dourdan, from the 5th to the 9th of September.
Various materials (program, abstracts and presentations) can be found here.
The event featured several communication by the members of the team including :
We are happy to announce that we will part of the "Agent-Based Models and Geographical Systems" session organized by Alison Heppenstall, Andrew Crooks and their colleagues. Communications in relation with Simpop will include :
We were proud to present our current research on Simpop at the bi-annual European Colloquium of Theoretical and Quantitative Geography in Athens, Greece. You can download the slides of these two communications (see attachments below) :
We'll be at the 2011 edition of the ECTQG ! 2 communications related to the Simpop models are part of the "Spatial simulation in geography session" scheduled on Monday september 5th.
