SCILA Methodological Seminars

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

In Greek mythology, walking between Scylla and Charybdis meant walking through a narrow channel between two monsters. In interdisciplinary research, the methods of the computer and mathematical sciences and the humanitarian theoretical background can often appear as such monsters. So how do we strike a balance, avoid making a mistake or incurring the wrath of Scylla or Charybdis? By discussing research with scientists from different backgrounds - mathematicians, psychologists, sociologists. This is the format offered at the SCILA lab seminar.

We invite researchers from different fields to participate in the workshop, especially those working on topics related to communication between people and/or people with information in a technologically mediated environment. We are open to discuss research in progress, recent findings, research proposals, or presentations regarding methodological issues.
