Lunch
14h00-17:00: in break-out groups (informal, includes coffee time): JavaSTICS interface.
- Verification of installation and description of the Menu interface of JavaSTICS (All)
- STICS files, how to provide input data. Glossary of parameters (All)
- Outcome: explore mod_b and mod_s files: how to “read” them, and what are the principal results (All)
- Small exercises to manipulate the model and see inputs and outputs (use of examples usm to be efficient with simple manipulations to start) (Small Groups)
