Ways of Seeing: A multidisciplinary workshop on data visualization and analytics
April 23, 2014 @ 9:30 am - April 24, 2014 @ 12:45 pm
Speaker(s): Invited International Speakers
Organised by: Dr. Srinivas Raghavendra
A COST Action workshop jointly organized by the Social Sciences Computing Hub at the Whitaker Institute and Complex Systems Research Centre (CORE), National University of Ireland Galway
The public policy analysis of complex social issues in the context of interconnected globalized world requires a multidimensional approach. Such an approach requires the ability to look beyond the borders of respective disciplines of knowledge and explore possible ways of seeing the issue at hand before defining the research problem. This workshop is aimed to provide such a learning experience to researchers in social sciences, and other related disciplines, with an interest in contributing to public policy at a regional, or national, or international level.
The workshop is structured in a way that it provides an opportunity for the researchers to share their diverse perspectives in analyzing issues of public policy in a practical learning environment. The invited speakers will take up an issue and discuss their approach to the problem both from a theoretical and empirical stand points. The speakers will also discuss some of the computational methods and challenges in their research through a short practical demonstration.
