Abstract for: Organizing and Analyzing Models with Stella and iThink

This is a follow on workshop to Getting Started with Stella will teach participants how to organize models using modules and how to analyze them and test behavior under varying assumptions. We will combine practical, hands on, step-by-step instructions with discussion of the foundation for module based model construction and its role in large scale model development. We will also, time permitting, look at the connections between computation and presentation in order to provide a clear understanding of the relationship between tabular and graphical results. This workshop is intended for analytic and numerately inclined individuals with some experience with iThink or Stella including those who attended the getting started workshop. Please bring a Windows or Macintosh computer to allow installation of the software for use during the workshop.
