RSVP - Simulation Workshop Series, January 21st and 23rd
This workshop series will introduce students to simulation-based decision-making along with an introduction to some of the associated techniques and tools. This series is in two parts. You can sign up for one or both workshops. There is limited seating. Once we have reached capacity, we will no longer accept RSVPs. Both workshops will take place on campus. However, we will send the exact location on or about January 19th.
Workshop I - An Introduction to Simulation-Based Decision Making, January 21st, 6 - 8 p.m.
Workshop I - This workshop is designed to provide students with an introduction to Policy Decision-Making with the Aid of Computer Simulations. Advanced technologies such as high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and big data are changing the policymaking landscape by promoting better-informed decision-making. Computer simulation models are one of the new technologies that are available for decision-makers in the public and non-profit sectors. In this workshop, students will learn the on-going changes in public policy decision-making and gain a basic understanding of how computer simulation models can help decision-makers in the public and non-profit sectors solve “wicked” problems in diverse policy domains, from disaster management, to public health, to global warming. The showcase of simulation-based decision making will also take place during the workshop.
Workshop II - Techniques and Tools for Simulation-Based Decision Making, January 23rd, 6 - 8 p.m.
This workshop is designed to provide students with an introduction to some of the tools and techniques used to simulate solutions to wicked problems. Students will receive hands-on experience with established computer simulation models that are used by practitioners to make a public policy decision in the real world. Example models will be used to demonstrate how technology can be used to project policy outcomes that derive from hypotheticals. Through the lab exercise, students will also learn how policy decision makers can benefit from computer simulations to account for the known elements of a public problem.
