Events for Researcher

The Digital Society Initiative invites researchers to exchange information and network with each other. For this reason, we regularly offer smaller and larger events at which researchers can present their projects. 

Events in cooperation with the DSI


Text Classification Workshop: The Computational Methods Working Group at the University of Zurich offers a two-day workshop on “Text Classification in Python” with Anke Stoll (University of Düsseldorf) and invites PhD students from all social sciences with prior general programming experience to apply. You can find further informations here.


Young scholars in Computational Social Science: The workshop “Young Scholars in Computational Social Science” addresses young scholars, i.e., PhD students or those who successfully defended their PhD within the last three years, who apply computational methods to answer questions in social sciences. We aim to attract young scholars from different disciplines in social sciences, including but not limited to communication science, political science, or sociology. Here you can find more informations.


Further events in the field of digitalization


12th International Summer School Digital Spatial Epidemiology: The course addresses spatial and digital epidemiological approaches to social media data with a focus on urban health. The focus will be on sate-of-the-art multivariable statistical and spatial statistical modeling to mental health outcomes as identified in geo-referenced Twitter data and associations with socio-ecological factors of urban contexts. More informations about the course can be found here.


SSPH+ Lugano Summerschool: At the SSPH+ Lugano Summer School public health professionals, researchers and graduate students learn together through mutual exchange in a stimulating and beautiful environment. The SSPH+ Lugano Summer School places health, disease, and health systems thinking under one common framework of coherent concepts and practical implications. The focus will be on public health policy, economics, management, and communication. The education obtained and networks created serve as an opportunity to reduce and prevent the gap between public health theory and practice. Click here for more informations.
