From July 24.-29., 2017, Lisa Merten
will be part of the Summer School Series on Methods for Computational Social Science. Organized by GESIS, Greenwich University, University of Southern California and Cornell University and supported by Volkswagen-Stiftung, the summer school focuses on methods for capturing, analyzing and modeling digital trace data
(e.g., click streams, interaction networks, sequences of user activities).
Another important addition is Juhi Kulshrestha
, currently employed at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, who will be joining the Hans-Bredow-Institut's postdoctoral network "Algorithmed Public Spheres" in fall 2017.
Outstanding keynote speakers and lecturers from different disciplines will teach different methods and show how digital trace data can be used to answer interesting research questions that are relevant for the social sciences and gain insights into social phenomena like prosocial behavior, consensus or mobility.
Students will conduct small projects in which they will apply the newly learned methods and will be supervised by the lectureres.
