Jean-Pierre Bocquet-Appel (CNRS, Paris) will give a special seminar at the Institute on 17 May.
Prof Bocquet-Appel's presentation is entitled 'Multi-agent simulations of the trajectory of the European Early Neolithic' and all are welcome.
Jean-Pierre Bocquet-Appel is a Professor at the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes, Paris, and Research Director at the CNRS laboratory for the Dynamics of Evolution, also in Paris. He is a palaeodemographer, best known for developing the concept of the Neolithic Demographic Transition and showing how it could tested against the archaeological record.
He currently directs the project ‘A retrospective observatory of an archaeological society: The trajectory of the LBK Neolithic’, funded by the French National Research Agency, and this will be the focus of his talk.
Any enquiries about this event may be directed to Stephen Shennan.
