Mapping the landscape

Good luck. The academy is the wild wild west” – A colleague, after we told him our ambition to map the landscape of institutes, grants, organisations, and events in our field.

Where or to whom do I turn if I need technical assistance, e.g. on databases or search engines? Which grants are available, specifically for computational social or behavioral research? What is the Institute for Advanced Study, and how can they help me? 

Conducting successful research requires knowing where to turn for help and collaborations. Science doesn’t happen in silos, but builds on networks of individuals, organisations, funders, knowledge hubs and infrastructure. But as individual researchers, we do not have an overview of these networks and entities. In fact, no one has.

CSBS makes an attempt to provide such an overview (‘mapping the landscape’) for the computational social and behavioral science landscape in Amsterdam. It will not be exhaustive, especially not in these early days, and its success depends on your inputs. Please add to this page directly, or drop an email to Javier or Anna.

ODISSEI Social Data Science Team (SoDa)

Location: Rotterdam
Funding Availability: Yes
Website: https://odissei-data.nl/en/using-soda/

The ODISSEI Social Data Science (SoDa) team exists to support social scientists in their research projects. Researchers from ODISSEI member organisations can propose research projects for which our computational, statistical, and research engineering skills will help answer questions that would otherwise remain unanswered.

    ODISSEI: Social Data Science

    Location: Rotterdam
    Funding Availability: Yes
    Website: https://odissei-data.nl/

    ODISSEI (Open Data Infrastructure for Social Science and Economic Innovations) is the sustainable research infrastructure for social sciences in the Netherlands. Through ODISSEI, researchers within the social sciences have access to large-scale, longitudinal data collections that can be connected to registerdata from Statistics Netherlands (CBS) in a secure environment. This virtual web enables researchers to answer new, cross-disciplinary research questions and to investigate existing questions in new ways.

        NPCS – Netherlands Platform Complex Systems

        Website: https://portal.insticc.org/

        INSTICC defines its mission as “to serve the international academic community and to promote the interaction of the academy with the active society, at a global scale, in fields related to engineering and technology, especially if involving informatics, control or communication”. Knowledge dissemination is one of its main activities, through technical/scientific conferences and congresses, as well as publications. Many internationally distinguished researchers contribute either as authors, keynote speakers or reviewers at INSTICC technical/scientific events, and many universities, innovative companies and international associations maintain collaboration relationships with INSTICC.

            CCS.Amsterdam – Computational Communication Science Amsterdam

            Website: http://ccs.amsterdam/

            CCS.Amsterdam is a group of computational communication scientists from the University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Across various research projects, we aim at employing and developing computational methods in order to answer social scientific research questions. This includes, among other exciting topics, research into news flows, polarisation, political microtargeting, fake news and recommender design.

            A core goal of our group is to disseminate knowledge among a growing community of enthusiastic computational communication scientists. To this end, we are organising regular mini-workshops, research talks and guest lectures that are attended by the core CCS.Amsterdam group, as well as interested members and students from the VU’s and UvA’s communication science departments.
