Split, Croatia

The phenomenon of digital connectivity is increasingly transforming the way humans interact and deal with problems of collective action. Such a paradigmatic change is expanding the frontiers of research in terms of theories, methods and analysis. Considering this context, faculty from Mississippi State University, George Mason University, the University of Zagreb, the University of Split and the University of Applied Sciences VERN’ at Zagreb will lead a week-long Seminar on Big Data and Social Sciences. The Seminar will take place at the University of Split in Split, Croatia, and at the International University center VERN’ on the island of Vis.

The seminar consists of a series of sessions that will be organized in Split in which participants will engage with lecturers to learn and discuss research on big data in social sciences, while on the island of Vis will be organized a series of workshops on big data and innovative methods. Participants will have the opportunity to gather knowledge from pertinent case study and learn updated methodologies for data analysis.

This seminar is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the afore mentioned institutions. We expect this effort to continue and further expand by creating a larger network of institutions interested in participating in the ongoing conversation about the big data research in social sciences, from both the practitioner and researcher standpoint. Participation in the seminar will benefit both students and researchers by expanding their knowledge about the realm of both practical and theoretical approaches to utilization of socially derived digital data for overcoming collective action dilemmas.
