*Digital Media Winter Institute 2020 | SMART Data Sprint 2020*

27 January - 06 February, 2020

Universidade NOVA de Lisboa

Lisbon, Portugal

#DMWI has annually gathered a network of international researchers, with
different backgrounds and expertise, interested in doing investigations
from the perspective of digital methods. New media researchers,
journalists, developers, data designers, digital methods experts,
sociologists, data scientists and more are meeting in Lisbon to work and
improve their skills, in theory, practice and critique of digital methods.

The program of #DMWI2020 brings the fourth edition of #SMARTDataSprint with
an international program: keynotes and practical labs by Tommaso Venturini
(médialab of Sciences Po Paris) and Bernhard Rieder (University of
Amsterdam). His keynote talk and practical labs are going to explore visual
network analysis. Rieder is an associate professor in New Media and Digital
Culture at the University of Amsterdam and a researcher at the Digital
Methods Initiative. He will give a keynote on mapping value(s) in
artificial intelligence (AI).

In the first week of DMWI, from 27 to 31 January 2020, participants from
around the world will come to Lisbon to attend keynote lectures, short
talks, parallel sessions of practical labs and join applied research
projects. Experts and scholars will invite participants to work
collectively on issues involving internet memes and platform censorship,
Anti-Feminist and Anti-LGBT Discourses, Method maps and Cross-Platform
Digital Networks. Other opportunities for hands-on experimentation with
methods are on the schedule with the following practical labs:

» YouTube Research & Ranking Culture

» Charting Collections of Connections in Social Media: Creating Maps and
Measures with NodeXL

» Gephi for beginners

» How to work with spreadsheets
