Migration, mobility and movement calls and opportunities
Monday 21 January 2019

The ANU Migration, Mobility and Movement Network would like to share the following calls and opportunities.

Computational Social Science Summer School on Data-Driven Modeling of Migration
Santa Margherita di Pula (Sardinia), Italy, 10-21 June 2019

Application deadline: 17 February 2019

The Bremen International Graduate School of Social Sciences (BIGSSS) Computational Social Science summer school cordially invites junior researchers (advanced MA students or higher*) to apply for participation in the CSS summer school on data-driven modeling of migration to take place in Santa Margherita di Pula on Sardinia, Italy, from June 10-21, 2019.

Women are especially encouraged to apply!

The CSS summer school serves as a research incubator aiming at fostering the use of data-driven methods in the social sciences and developing a contribution to the research field of migration. During the summer school, you will work in one of eight teams of five people on a specific research project. Each team consists of three junior researchers and two senior experts/supervisors, with strong methodological expertise in CSS and the field of migration research. Each team will work through the whole research process with the aim to prepare a manuscript for scientific publication. Each project combines CSS methods with a research focus on migration. This involves data-driven modeling of migration and making use of simulation or prediction techniques. The projects may look, for example, into the consequences of migration and its relation to conflicts and social cohesion.

Learn more about the general summer school concept, the focus on migration and CSS methods of the 2019 school, as well as check out our expert team and the pre-defined projects they offer: https://bigsss-css.jacobs-university.de/calls/call2019/
