Summer School Series on Methods for Computational Social Science
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). Outstanding keynote speakers and lecturers from different disciplines 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.
Full financial support for up to 10 students (or early career researchers) is offered. 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).
The school will take place in Berlin, Germany’s capital city. The school will be located at the Akademie Berlin-Schmöckwitz located in South-East Berlin. The historic mansion is surrounded by the beautiful nature of the Wernsdorfer Lake.
