Researchers interested in computational social science will be given the chance to learn new skills at a spring school in April 2022.

The NCRM/Exeter Computational Communication Methods Spring School will provide training at introductory and advanced levels, catering for both social scientists and data scientists.

The event is being organised by the Exeter Q-Step Centre and will take place at the University of Exeter on 6-14 April 2022.

The spring school will cover multiple computational approaches, such as machine learning and network analysis, and their application to communication research, looking at text, images and social media data.

World-leading experts will deliver workshops, seminars and demonstrations, help desks will offer one-to-one consultations and there will be opportunities for more informal networking.

Sessions will be suitable for PhD and postdoctoral researchers, as well as early-career and senior academics. In addition to training, there will be opportunities for participants to develop new interdisciplinary research collaborations.

Further details about the event, including options for online access to sessions, will be confirmed in early 2022. For more information, email: To register your interest, complete an expression of interest form.
