Summer School Series on Methods
for Computational Social Science
|TBA||Special rates for rooms available|
The third summer school of this series will focus on methods for analyzing multimedia data (e.g., computer vision methods, spatial and temporal analysis of urban spaces via multimedia content analysis, spreading and mutation models for multimedia content). We will invite outstanding keynote speakers and lecturers from different disciplines that will teach different methods and show how multimedia data can be used to answer interesting research questions that are relevant for the social sciences and gain insights into cultural phenomena like social orientation and its expression for instance in urban spaces, images and art. Students will conduct small projects in which they will apply the newly learned methods and will be supervised by the lectureres.
We will offer full financial support for up to 10 students (or early career researchers). Students have to apply for the travel grants and a committee of experts will select scholars based on academic excellence, financial needs and diversity (e.g., gender, ethnic and disciplinary diversity).
We’re honoured to have amazing speakers who teach the basics and specifics of their research.
The Summer School will take place in Germany. The venue will be announced soon.
Meet excellent researchers and scholars – a great chance to develop cooperations for your career.
Socialize with all participants, enjoy local food and drinks close to the beach.
