Details

Applications are invited from those who would like to participate in a workshop on modeling and historical studies, with a focus on past climate change and human adaptation. Participants will get hands-on experience developing a historical climate and migration model.

Aims

The workshop has three aims:

1. To acquaint researchers in history and archaeology with state-of-the-art climate and human adaptation models.
2. To give modelers a better understanding of how historical and archaeological research can be incorporated into model development and analysis
3. To consider best practices for the development and application of computational models in history and archaeology.

Financial support

Funding is available to cover travel and lodging costs of a limited number of participants, with preference given to graduate students and early-career researchers. Please indicate in your application if you are interested in receiving travel support funds.

Applications

For those interested in participating, please send a CV and brief (200 words max) description of research interests by 1 March 2018 to: Alvaro Montenegro (This email address is being protected from spambots.
