Gianluca Manzo visits Oslo and ISS in April 2010. In connection with his visit he will be presenting his work at the Aks seminar entitled "Modelling Educational Stratification Mechanisms by Agent-based Models: an Application to French and Italian Data".

Gianluca Manzo is a researcher at Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) in Paris.
