The pre-conference Data Farming 101 Workshop is designed for newcomers to simulation experiments. Data farming is the process of using computational experiments to grow data, which can then be analyzed using statistical and visualization techniques to obtain insight into complex systems. The focus of the workshop will be on gaining practical experience with setting up and running a simulation experiment. Participants will be introduced to important concepts, and jointly explore simulation models in an interactive setting. Demonstrations and written materials will supplement guided, hands-on activities through the experiment set up, design, data collection and analyses phases.
