Computational Communication Science: Towards a Strategic Roadmap


The Department of Journalism and Communication Research at Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media cordially invites to the international academic conference event “Computational Communication Science”. During various training courses and a workshop conference the event aims to develop knowledge, skills, resources, and strategies in computational methods within the field of communication. Results of the events will be transcribed into a text documentation that is foreseen for joint publication by participants and shall serve the research community in understanding and utilizing methods, tools, and resources of computational social science. 

“Computational Communication Science” will be divided into two stages and will take place between February 12 and February 16, 2018 in Hannover, Germany:

  • At first, training courses on various issues in computational methods and “Big Data” will be offered to young scholars (post-doctoral researchers and doctoral students) (February 12 – 15, 2018).
  • Afterwards a 1.75-day workshop conference will be held (February 15 – 16, 2018). During this stage participants of the training courses, leading scholars from communication and other social science fields as well as practitioners from relevant corporations will meet to discuss and craft a strategic roadmap for advancing computational methods in the field of communication. We envision a dialogue-intensive event with about 70 international participants.

We will invite 20 experts and leading scholars to the event. Additionally, we are happy to announce full scholarships for 50 young scholars (post-doctoral researchers and doctoral students). The travel expenses of these selected applicants will be fully covered to enable participation to the conference and the training courses. 

Further information on the application and conference fees will be provided soon.

The event is funded by Volkswagen Foundation.
