CSS Seminar

The CSS seminar series takes place monthly at Centre Marc Bloch in Stadtmitte and is aimed at scholars in the Berlin/Brandenburg area interested in issues related to computational social science. It is also thought as an opportunity to foster a local community in this regard.

The usual time for the seminar is 5pm to 6pm; if the time changes for a particular session it will say so in the program table below and in the invitation. Following the session, we usually invite presenters and attendees to stay for a drink and small buffet at CMB to get to know fellow researchers in the local CSS community.

Below you can find out about upcoming sessions as well as past sessions.

If you are interested in hearing directly about upcoming sessions, you can subscribe to our mailing list by sending an email to css-seminar-subscribe@cmb.hu-berlin.de. You will receive a first email which you will need to confirm to finalise the subscription process.
