Today it’s time to leave the Informatikum for our yearly Doctoral Camp 2017. For three days the MAST research group (Prof. Maalej and his Ph.D. students) will stay in a Swedish house near a beautiful lake in Malente. Interesting talks with intensive discussions, fun-activities, BBQ, and even an original Italian pizza workshop are waiting for our Ph.D. students.
We will shortly provide an update and are looking forward to a great Doctoral Camp 2017!
On Tuesday, June 13th, several members of our group, including Prof. Dr. Maalej, will participate in a large media event that will take place in the Hamburg chamber of commerce (Handelskammer Hamburg).
Together with our partners from the Hans Bredow Institute for Media Research, we will present the SCAN project, and how software analytics can assist journalists in their everyday work. The software tool that we are currently researching and developing analyses and aggregates the audience comments, and helps journalists identify useful comments and derive new journalistic stories.
We are looking forward to our presentation, the panel discussion afterwards, and to all the other talks of this events (see invitation below).
Global warming and fast urbanization are affecting the quality of life in modern cities. Air pollution, heat, noise, and other environmental stressors are constantly harming the health and well-being of the citizens. Detailed knowledge about the environmental impacts and public resources play a significant role in a socio-ecological and sustainable city development. Our goal is to investigate whether crowdsourcing-based approaches can be used to improve urban measurement networks regarding resolution, innovative applications, and cost-efficiency.
On June 22nd, 2017, we organize the “Hamburg Interdisciplinary Colloquium on Smart Sustainable Cities” together with Dr. Dirk Bade and Dr. Benjamin Bechtel. Students from the Department of Informatics and from the Institute of Geography will come together to present and to discuss their projects.
