The project will use agent-based modelling to develop mechanisms for norm emergence and behaviour change, to encourage desirable behaviours (e.g. using active travel instead of driving). Typically, norm emergence is facilitated through incentivisation mechanisms in the form of recommendations, rewards, or punishments. This project will consider the social effects of such interventions, along with issues of transparency, trust and fairness.
Candidates should have a computer science or related scientific background, strong analytical skills, and experience of programming (or an aptitude for programming).

The High Performance and Scientific Computing Research group at the Department of Computer Science has a 3.5 year, fully funded (Home/EU fees + stipend) PhD studentship available for the academic year starting Oct 2018. The initial objective of the project is to research and develop OP2 to generate parallel code utilising the upcoming OpenMP4.5/5.0 extensions for programming GPU systems. The Department of Computer Science is now seeking expressions of interest from excellent Home/EU candidates to pursue a PhD in this area at the University of Warwick.
