Deadline: Dec 7, 2015

Culture Analytics Program aims to promote a vigorous collaboration
across disciplines and devise new approaches and novel mathematics to
address the problems of culture analytics, by bringing together leading
scholars in the social sciences and humanities with those in applied
mathematics, engineering, and computer science.

The program includes a week of tutorials and weeklong workshops:

1. Culture analytics beyond text: image, music, video, interactivity,
and performance
2. Culture analytics and user-experience design
3. Cultural patterns: multi-scale data-driven models
4. Mathematical analysis of cultural expressive forms: text data

Lead organizers:
– Tina Eliassi-Rad (Rutgers),
– Mauro Maggioni (Duke),
– Lev Manovich (The Graduate Center, CUNY),
– Vwani Roychowdhury (UCLA),
– Tim Tangherlini (UCLA).

Funding is available for your stay from a few days (attending one
workshop) to the duration of the whole program.

We welcome applications from advanced Ph.D. students and researchers at
any stage of their careers. People in Computer Science as well as
Humanities are welcome to apply, as long as you are interested in
applying quantitative methods for cultural analysis. Supporting the
careers of women and minority mathematicians and scientists is an
important component of IPAM’s mission and we welcome their applications.

Applications will be accepted through Monday, December 7, 2015.
