Young Scientists Summer Program

Date: 1 Jun 2014 to 31 Aug 2014
Organizer: International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis
Location: Vienna, Austria

Web page: Young Scientists Summer Program, Information in Swedish for students from Swedish universities

IIASA’s annual 3-month Young Scientists Summer Program (YSSP) offers research opportunities to young researchers whose interests correspond with IIASA’s ongoing research on issues of global environmental, economic and social change. From June through August accepted participants work within the Institute’s research programs under the guidance of IIASA scientific staff. Funding is provided through IIASA's National Member Organizations.

Applicants to the YSSP prepare a research proposal that corresponds both with their professional plans and the agenda of their selected IIASA Program. Accepted applicants begin work before the summer by planning their research in close collaboration with their IIASA supervisors. The 2014 program starts on June 1, 2014, and ends on August 31, 2014. In order to be considered, applicants must commit to staying for the entire program.

Registration for the 2014 program opened on October 1, 2013. Closing date is January 13, 2014. Candidates will be informed about acceptance of their applications by March 10, 2014.

ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research

Date: 23 Jun 2014 to 15 Aug 2014
Organizer: ICPSR
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan

Web page: ICPSR Summer Program

Since its inception, the Consortium has offered the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research as a complement to its data services. The Summer Program provides a comprehensive, integrated program of studies in research design, statistics, data analysis, and social science methodology. Its instructional environment stresses integration of methods of quantitative analysis within a broader context of substantive social research. Instruction is grounded in interactive, participatory data-analysis utilizing high-end, networked microcomputers. Because of the range of methodological instruction, the opportunity for intensive study, and the quality of instruction and supporting facilities, the Summer Program has become internationally recognized as a preeminent forum for basic and advanced training in the methodologies and technologies of social science research and instruction.

Utrecht Summer School 2014

Date: 30 Jun 2014 to 29 Aug 2014
Organizer: Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Science & HKU University of the Arts Utrecht
Location: Utrecht, Nederländerna

Web page: Utrecht Summer School 2014, Kurser

Utrecht Summer School started in 1987, with one course: Dutch Culture and Society. Nowadays the programme offers a broad selection of over 170 academic courses in virtually all disciplines organised by Utrecht University, HU University of Applied Sciences and HKU University of the Arts. These institutions offer high quality, challenging summer courses on bachelor, master and PhD level. All courses are taught in English by our academic staff. In 2013 the Utrecht Summer School attracted around 3000 students from over 98 different countries. ECTS credits are rewarded for most of the courses.

Utrecht Summer School is spread over several locations in and around Utrecht, with a satellite campus at the University College Roosevelt in Middelburg. International combination courses  give students the possibility to attend an international course of which part of the programme takes place outside The Netherlands at cooperating partner universities in Italy, Germany, Estonia and many more places.

Joint Culture & Technology and CLARIN-D Summer School: "Digital Humanities & Language Resources"

Date: 22 Jul 2014 to 1 Aug 2014

Web page: The European Summer School in Digital Humanities

The Summer School is directed at participants from all over Europe and beyond. The Summer School wants to bring together (doctoral) students, young scholars and academics from the Arts and Humanities, Library Sciences, Social Sciences, Engineering and Computer Sciences as equal partners to an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge and experience in a multilingual and multicultural context and thus create the conditions for future project-based cooperations and network-building across the borders of disciplines, countries and cultures.

The Summer School aims to provide a stimulating environment for discussing, learning and advancing knowledge and skills in the methods and technologies which play a central role in Humanities Computing and determine more and more the work done in the Arts and Humanities, in libraries, archives, and museums, in the Language Industries, and similar fields. The Summer School seeks to integrate these activities into the broader context of the Digital Humanities, where questions about the consequences and implications of the application of computational methods and tools to cultural artefacts of all kinds are asked. It further aims to provide insights into the complexity of humanistic data and the challenges the Humanities present for computer science and engineering and their further development.

The Summer School takes place across 11 whole days. The intensive programme consists of workshops, public lectures, regular project presentations, a poster session and a panel discussion.

Facilitating Process and Metadata-Driven Automation in the Social, Economic, and Behavioural Sciences with the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI)

Date: 13 Oct 2014 to 17 Oct 2014
Organizer: GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences
Location: Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz Center for Informatics, Wadern, Germany

Web page: Further details , Practical information, Registration

Course Instructors:
Arofan Gregory (ODaF - Open Data Foundation, Tucson, Arizona, USA)
Wendy L. Thomas (MPC - Minnesota Population Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA)
Joachim Wackerow (GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences, Mannheim, Germany)

Description of the workshop
This training workshop will provide an introduction to using the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) standard to enable many of the processes common to the social, behavioural, and economic sciences, from the conceptualization of surveys through data collection, processing, analysis, and dissemination. The focus of the workshop will be on the “Lifecycle” branch of DDI, version 3.2, which provides a detailed model of the metadata needed to support both human-driven and automated processing. The workshop will be organized in a task-oriented manner, with participants actively documenting real-world use cases in order to learn how best to employ the DDI model and associated technology. The use cases produced can be published as the final output of the workshop, as a resource to the broader DDI community. Participants are encouraged to bring their own organizational use cases.

The workshop is aimed at data producers, managers, and users who are not already experts in the DDI, or who wish to become more familiar with the latest version of the standard (version 3.2). There will also be information provided about DDI RDF Vocabularies and the envisioned shift in future versions of DDI Lifecycle to a model-based approach – the style of modeling and some of the standard implementation syntaxes (RDF and XML) will be covered. The workshop will include hands-on exercises and work within break-out groups on specific use cases, but will be accessible to participants with all levels of technical expertise.
