Summer School Series on Methods

for Computational Social Science 

Berlin, Germany
July 22-27, 2019

Methods for Analyzing Multimedia Data


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 will invite outstanding keynote speakers and lecturers 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 lectureres.

We will offer full financial support for up to 10 students (or early career researchers). 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).


Excellent Speakers

We’re honoured to have amazing speakers who teach the basics and specifics of their research.

Beautiful Location

The Summer School will take place in Germany.


Meet excellent researchers and scholars – a great chance to develop cooperations for your career.


Socialize with all participants, enjoy local food and drinks close to the beach.


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).


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

Travel Grants

Please indicate in your motivation letter if you would like to apply for a travel grant which will cover your registration fee, accommodation for the whole week and basic travel costs. Please note that travel grants are intended for students.
Please also indicate if you will only participate if you receive the travel grant or if we should also consider your application for normal positions if no travel grants are left. Students with travel grant will have to share rooms.


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.


More information about accomodation in “Akademie Berlin-Schmöckwitz” will follow soon.
