CSDE Computational Demography Working Group: Winter Quarter Meetings

Posted: 1/9/2018 ()

Join CSDE’s Computational Demography Working Group for our winter quarter meetings! This quarter we will have another set of stimulating meetings to foster interaction and exchange between students and researchers who share an interest in computational demography and beyond.

The schedule for the Winter quarter is as follows:

Thursday, Jan 25th: Connor Gilroy: “Facebook ads, demographic estimates, and sexuality in the US”

Thursday Feb 8th: Ian Kennedy: “Scaling qualitative analysis of Twitter data via RShiny”

Thursday, March 1st: Nathan Welch (with Adrian Dobra and Nathalie Williams): “Modeling and mapping human mobility”

 

All meetings will be in 114 Raitt Hall, from 12:00-1:20 PM.

As a reminder, these are informal meetings (i) to discuss topics related to demographic data, computational methods and statistical approaches; (ii) to workshop research in progress; and (iii) to share tools via demos or tutorials.

Everyone is welcome. Those who would like to receive regular announcements with more details about these meetings should sign up for the following mailing list:
