Computational Demography Working Group (CDWG) Meeting

Posted: 10/6/2019 (CSDE Research and Local Events)

Mark your calendars! The Computational Demography Working Group (CDWG) is holding its first meeting on Thursday, October 10, 12:00 – 1:30pm in Raitt Hall 114. CDWG is a special interest group cosponsored by CSDE and the eScience Institute. CDWG meets several times a quarter to provide an interdisciplinary forum for discussions of digital and computational approaches to demographic research.

CDWG meetings include informal talks, methods demonstrations, roundtable discussions, and technical tutorials. In the coming year, we plan to host a number of new UW faculty to learn about their work as it intersects with demography and data science. We also plan to organize several of our tutorials around the theme of developing an R package for academic research, focusing on meeting the needs of researchers who work with demographic and spatial neighborhood data.

For the first CDWG meeting, graduate students Neal Marquez and Lee Fiorio will present on “Differential Privacy, the US Census, and What It Means For Policy Makers and Social Science Researchers.”

If you are are interested in the CDWG, you can find out more by visiting the CDWG website or by joining the mailing list.
