SoFiA: Latin American School on Data Analysis and Mathematical Modeling of Social Science
SoFiA, the first Latin American School and Workshop on Data Analysis and Mathematical Modelling of Social Science, is organised by Sociofísica Argentina and Centro Latinoamericano de Formación Interdisciplinaria (CELFI).
The School-Workshop on Data Analysis and Mathematical Modeling of Social Science aims to introduce students and researchers to various topics in the field of social science. This event will cover theoretical, experimental and computational aspects and current trends in the broad area of social research, including dynamical processes in socio-economic systems, the generation and analysis of big data, laboratory behavioral experiments and the analysis of human mobility patterns. The event will address five different areas of social science, and will be organized in morning courses, early afternoon lectures, and late afternoon poster sessions. Each invited Professor will teach a three-hour course for undergraduate and graduate students, explaining the main concepts and tools of a particular area, and will also give a plenary talk.
Registration and submission of abstracts for posters and oral presentations will be made through the Argentinian Physical Society (AFA).
Registration and abstract submission period: 8th to 27th August.
Registration is free, but mandatory for participation.
Grants to participate in SoFiA are available here up to 25th August.
