We are happy that the VolkswagenStiftung finally accepted our proposal for a one week conference event on computational communication science! In February 2018, the Department of Journalism and Communication Research at Hanover University of Music, Drama, and Media cordially organizes an event that brings together young scholars as well as experts from the field. Our aims are twofold: First, we want to qualify young scholars so that they can adopt computational method in their research as well as their teaching. Thus, various training courses on computational research methods will be organized. Second, a workshop event aims to explore and elucidate the challenges that hinder communication scientists to apply the new methods in their work. Together, we will craft a strategic roadmap that shapes the future of computational communication science. More Information can be found on our new website.
