CIVICA Data Science Days

CIVICA Data Science Days

6-7 October 2022
On-site & online
Hosted by the European University Institute

Join a snowball seminar of CIVICA’s Data-Driven Technologies for the Social Sciences theme group

This seminar brings together CIVICA communities interested in data science and computational social science. The aim is for early-stage researchers across the alliance to network with each other, to learn new methodologies and to discuss their ongoing research.

Researchers at CIVICA institutions can apply to attend the in-person event organised in Florence, Italy. The cost of travel and lodging will be covered by the individual institution from the CIVICA budget for the snowball seminar. Other interested participants can attend the seminar sessions online.

Registration is mandatory. Register by 31 August>>
