Computational Methods Working Group

Computational Methods Working Group

The Computational Methods Working Group (CMWG) consists of young scholars of the Department of Communication and Media Research, the Department of Political Science, the fög - Research Center for the Public Sphere and Society at the University of Zurich and the Center for Security Studies at ETH Zurich.

The working group has two main goals:

  1. The group brings together young scholars interested in computational methods with different social science backgrounds and fosters the exchange around the topic across disciplines.
  2. The group fosters the methodological education of social scientists in the field of computational social science (e.g., by organising workshops).

The working group is open to all young scholars with an interest in computational methods and the willingness to attend the CMWG meetings. CMWG aims to be inclusive and heterogeneous, and to represent a wide range of social science disciplines, methodological approaches and interests.

If you are interested in joining the group get in contact with us at
