Observing debates across media platforms: tools and models - an ODYCCEUS online event

October 26 - 28, 2020
Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences

The rise of digital media platforms is changing public political discourse dramatically. Their facilitation of communication leads to an abundance of continuously generated data that calls for new means to make it comprehensible to human participants. The ODYCCEUS (Opinion DYnamics and Cultural Conflict in European Spaces, www.odycceus.eu) project is devoted to the development of theories, methods and tools to deal with this challenge. The main purpose of the event is to present recent results from the project and to discuss them in the context of the further development of computational social sciences. Presentations will focus on models, methods and tools for the analysis of political debate across and within different platforms.
