Since 2003, we have offered and often redesigned this workshop on the Koblenz Campus of Koblenz-Landau University for participants who learnt the basics in one of our ZUMA Simulation Workshops and who were then working on simulations of their own.


The format of this workshop is as follows:

The workshop starts on Monday at 19:00 with a get-together meeting.

On Tuesday, we start work with short oral presentations of the participants' projects (9 to 12) and comments from the side of the organisers, (12 to 13), then have group meetings in the afternoon (where Michael Möhring, Nigel Gilbert and Klaus G. Troitzsch would be present part of the time).

On Wednesday and Thursday we meet in plenary sessions in the morning with progress presentations and with presentations of completed projects, and in group sessions in the afternoon (with an excursion to a castle in the neighbourhood of Koblenz and one more evening in one of our vineries). If there is time enough, Michael, Nigel and I could also give some presentations of new models and/or new software.

On Friday morning we would have a final plenary session with final reports from the groups.

Details can be found on this page which is often updated.
