Panel Discussion @ Koblenz Weeks of Democracy

[go to overview]

The Institute WeST organizes a panel discussion at the “Koblenz Weeks of Democracy” with the topic:

What are Scientists doing for Democracy? A Glimpse into the Scientific Warfare against Misinformation, between Computer Science and Political Science.

Program of the event:
Part 1: Introducing our institute
Part 2: Panel discussion (30 mins), Questions and Answers (30mins)
Part 3: Demonstration of an experiment. When you register, you will be asked to participate, if you like, in a very short survey. The survey simply asks the user to provide some words associated with democracy-related concepts and some general questions. By using this anonymous data and the words provided by the participants, we will then show at the event a data visualization of the concepts people associate with democracy.

The event will be held in English.

Date: 24th May 2019
Time: 6pm-8pm
Location: Universität Koblenz-Landau, Campus Koblenz, Universitätsstraße 1, 56070 Koblenz/ G 310
