BIGSSS Summer School in Computational Social Science: Data-driven Modeling of Migration
Research Incubators on Data-driven Modeling of Conflicts, Migration, and Social Cohesion
The summer school will serve as a research incubator aimed at fostering the use of computational methods in the social sciences and developing a topical contribution to migration research. Eight teams of five people will be working on specific research projects. Each team will consist of three junior researchers (MA/Ph.D./early Postdoc) and two senior experts as project leaders, ideally one with strong methodological expertise in CSS and the other with strong topical expertise in migration research. The goal is to train the 24 participating junior researchers in CSS methods and to give them hands-on expertise in a cutting-edge research project on migration using CSS methods. Each team will work through the whole research process with the aim to prepare a manuscript for scientific publication. The resulting output may be published in an edited volume or the special issue of a peer-reviewed journal.
