Summer School Series on Methods for Computational Social Science


  • Akademie Berlin-Schmoeckwitz Wernsdorfer Straße Berlin, Berlin, 12527 Germany (map)

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). The organizers have invited outstanding speakers 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 invited speakers.

Full financial support is offered 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).
