As the data world increases in its complexity with gathering pace, data that is linked through time will become an increasing focus for the social and behavioural sciences. These data come in many different forms and granularities from the traditional longitudinal data provided by the UK’s world envied cohort studies through user data generated social media data to tracking data generated by mobiles and live streams from sensors.
This workshop will bring together social and data scientists who work with these data with the aim exchanging ideas and develop the agenda for the social and behavioural sciences. In plenary we will see presentations on cutting edge methods and new research questions made possible by these data and in break out groups we will draw out the key themes and future methodological research agenda.
The intended output of the workshop is a position paper for submission to a top journal. All workshop attendees will be invited to co-author that paper, which is why we are inviting applications to attend this event. Applications are made via the registration link below.
The workshop will run from 13:00 on 19th January to 14:00 on the 20th January. There will be a workshop dinner on the evening of the 19th.
