DIAS Modelling Framework Training
The ACCS will be hosting a 3 day training
course on the DIAS modelling framework.
The course will be held at The University of
Queensland, St. Lucia Campus, Brisbane from
Tuesday 19th -
Thursday 21st July 2005.
DIAS is a framework for modelling and simulation of dynamic, complex systems. More information is available on the DIAS website: www.dis.anl.gov/projects/dias.html
The cost of the course is $1300 (some funding may be available for ACCS participants).
DIAS is Java based, so while there will be a Java refresher as part of the course, some Java or general software engineering experience is a prerequisite for the course.
Additional information, including program detail, will be made available here as they are finalised. For further details, contact Leighton Brough.
Preliminary Program Description
- DIAS History and Evolution
- DIAS Framework Overview
- The “DIAS Design Process”
- RCW Example – DIAS Design Process
- DIAS Model Integration Process
- Simulation Management and Distributed Architecture
- FACET Social Modelling Framework
- ANL Utilities Package
- Spatial Data Sets
- Coding Guidelines and exercise
The third day will be spent on coding and a worked example in the lab. You may wish to bring your laptop if you have one.
We will be providing a CD for each participant. It will have the needed software on it for this worked example, so they will have a hands-on experience, and will also include the Java API for DIAS
A set of course notes will cover all of the above modules. The notes will also include some introductory material on the DIAS paradigm.
