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). We 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.


Please submit your motivation letter (one page max), CV, and publication list in one PDF file via EasyChair:

The school is open to anyone interested in learning about Computational Social Science. The aim is to bring together an heterogeneous international group of people. However, we have a limited number of places for participants. That means everyone needs to apply (also if you have your own funding).

COSTS  Registration fee for the summer school is 100 EUR. Lunch, coffee breaks and a social event are included.
