SCILA Methodological Seminars

The “SCILA and Charybdis' seminar is a platform created to discuss interdisciplinary research and methods.

In Greek mythology, Scylla and Charybdis were two monsters who threatened sailors trying to pass between them through a narrow strait. In interdisciplinary research, meeting the requirements of different disciplines, such as computer science and humanities, may often be as challenging as passing between Scylla and Charybdis. By discussing methodological difficulties of such research with scholars from different backgrounds, SCILA lab contributes to a trustful dialogue aimed at helping to avoid the perils of interdisciplinary studies.

We invite researchers from different fields to participate in our bi-weekly seminar, especially those working on topics related to communication between people and/or people with information in technologically mediated environments, and on respective AI approaches. We are open to discuss research in progress, recent findings, research proposals, or presentations regarding methodological issues.
