Taking place in Berlin, the third summer school of this series will focus on methods for analyzing multimedia data.
The second European Symposium on Computational Social Science will be taking place in Cologne, Dec 5-6, 2018.
This years Cathie Marsh Memorial Lecture will look at the future of surveys. SAGE Ocean are sponsoring the drinks reception following the lecture. There is no fee to attend but please register below if you plan to attend.
In a world becoming increasingly sceptical of the role and value of ‘expertise’, how can we ensure that social science research remains relevant, valued and utilised? In the face of this scepticism, do we need to alter the way in which we communicate research to the public and, if so, how? Are the channels for communicating research changing, and how can researchers ensure that they are using these channels to best effect? Bringing together Dr Sile Lane, Head of Interational Campaigns and Policy, Sense about Science, Catherine Fieschi, Director of Counterpoint, Louise Tickle, freelance journalist, and Amy Mollet, Senior Social Media Stategist at the Parliamentary Digital Service, this panel, held by SAGE Publishing and Sense about Science, will address these questions, exploring the ways in which social science research can be effectively communicated in order to build back trust in experts in a “post-truth” era.
As part of the ESRC's 2018 Festival of Social Science, join us for a panel debate focused on the future of social science research.
Aimed at both primary and secondary (5-18 years) teachers in the UK, this continuing professional development (CPD) event will explore the theme of ‘using big data in the classroom’.
Hosted by Nesta and SAGE Publishing, the event will be a day of talks, workshops and discussions to map the best tools and methods for collective intelligence; to learn from the inspiring people and projects already pioneering important work in this space; and to discuss how we can make the most of the opportunity in collective intelligence through research, experiments and practical programmes.
The Alan Turing Institute and ESRC invite you to attend a two day event exploring Social Data Science in Evidence-Based Policy-Making.
“What is the role of the Arts and Humanities in the age of Data Science?”
For those unable to attend in person, we will be live-streaming each day from approximately 9:00am to 5:30pm ET.
From the evening of Sunday, June 17 to the morning of Saturday, June 30, 2018, the Russell Sage Foundation will sponsor the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science, to be held at Duke University. The purpose of the Summer Institute is to bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and beginning faculty interested in computational social science. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived). The co-organizers and principal faculty of the Summer Institute are Christopher Bail and Matthew Salganik.
Launch of Positive Prospects: Careers for social science graduates and why number and data skills matter
Next week sees the launch of a new report from the Campaign for Social Science, published by SAGE, Positive Prospects: Careers for social science graduates and why number and data skills matter.
Data and inequality: Perceptions of inequality and their links to political instability: The role of data science
The event will be livestreamed at bit.ly/TuringLive
This seminar series features leading scholars and development industry practitioners working in the nexus of data and inequality. They reflect on the influence of the ever-increasing presence of data on processes of data and inequality. The speaker presentations will be followed by a discussion amongst the seminar participants. (The seminars are also intended as opportunities for networking).
After last year’s successful ‘Introduction to tools for social media research’, the SRA and #NSMNSS are teaming up again to deliver a one-day conference on ‘Answering social science questions with social media data’.
