Hemsida: GESIS Summer School in Survey Methodology

The program for the 4th GESIS Summer School in Survey Methodology 2015 is online and registration is open. The Summer School will be held from August 6 to 28 at GESIS Cologne, Germany. 18 courses are scheduled, among which 4 short courses and 14 one-week courses. Here is an overview of the courses on offer this year:

Short Courses:

One-week courses:

Thanks to our cooperation with CDSS, University of Mannheim, participants can obtain up to 4 ECTS points per one-week course. In addition to courses, we have – also thanks to our sponsors – prepared a number of plenary and social events including weekly welcome receptions with finger food and drinks on the GESIS roof terrace, cultural and social outing as well as evening talks by experts in Survey Methodology.

The registration deadline is May 31st (but in order to secure a place and affordable accommodation, we recommend early registration). Those who book and pay for a course by April 30th will receive a 50 Euro discount off the one-week course fees. A limited number of bursaries, provided by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), is available for international participants.

Hard to Survey Populations

Datum: 2015-08-26 till 2015-08-28
Organisatör: Statistics Sweden and Örebro University
Plats: Örebro

Hemsida: The Statistics Sweden and Örebro University Summer School in Statistics 2015

Sample surveys are a cornerstone for producing official statistics and in research within many empirical sciences, e.g. sociology, economics, geography, psychology, and epidemiology. For several reasons sample surveys are becoming increasingly difficult to conduct. Some segments of the population are hard to sample, some are hard to find, others are hard to persuade to participate in surveys, and still others are hard to interview. This school offers a systematic look at populations and settings that make surveys hard to conduct and at methods that can be used to meet these challenges. The school is given from noon Wednesday August 26 to noon Friday August 28.

Mathematical Tools for Social Scientists: An Introduction with R

Datum: 2015-09-14 till 2015-09-18
Organisatör: GESIS - Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences
Plats: Cologne, Germany

Hemsida: Mathematical Tools for Social Scientists: An Introduction with R

“Mathematical Tools for Social Scientists: An Introduction with R” given by Prof. Dr. Michael Greenacre, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona and Dr. Oleg Nenadic, University of Göttingen

The course is designed to foster knowledge about the mathematical roots of statistical procedures. Both lecturers are very experienced in empirical research and in teaching statistical data analysis techniques. You will learn about mathematical procedures without doing pencil work. It is highly recommended to take a course on ‘Mathematical Tools’ in order to arrive at a better understanding of the mechanics of procedures needed for many applications. Of course, a one week-workshop does not cover all and everything, but should give you much more than just basic ideas in this matter.

Michael Greenacre and Oleg Nenadic in their own style follow Martin Elff, who successfully taught his course on MathTools in recent years.
Please note: Martin Elff will continue to teach his course under the umbrella of the GESIS Summer School from 2016 onwards.
