We are pleased to see that the two main R-based tools developed at the VOSON Lab continue to be relevant and useful for academics and researchers around the world.
The Digital Concepts and Methods Workshop - organised by the Critical Conversations Lab, News & Media Research Centre University of Canberra- will be held today via ZOOM video conferencing.
Expert presentations include:
On 5 December 2019, the Senate resolved to establish a Select Committee on Foreign Interference through Social Media to inquire into and report on the risk posed to Australia’s democracy by foreign interference through social media.
The VOSON Lab hosted the research workshop "Social and Behavioural Dynamics of attention", aimed at bringing together academics, ECRs and PhD candidates from diverse disciplines to present their research utilising Computational Social Science methods and online data.
PD Dr Florian Muhle (Faculty of Sociology, Bielefeld University, Germany) visited the VOSON Lab as part of the ANU Global Research Partnership Scheme to establish the "ANU Social Dynamics of Attention Centre".
Data Sprints are inspired by hackathons organised by the open source community, and are workshops in which participants from diverse backgrounds meet physically and collaborate intensively on a pre-determined subject and dataset.
VOSON Lab affiliates have participated in the Fourth Australian Social Network Analysis Conference #ASNAC2019. The conference intends to build greater coordination and collaboration among social network researchers and practitioners in Australia and overseas, and raise the profile of Australian social network research nationally and internationally.
