The sixth edition of SMART Data Sprint will receive Portuguese and foreign researchers to discuss themes in the development and creation of methods. The event is organized by the SMART (Social Media Research Techniques) research group of the iNOVA Media Lab (ICNOVA).

The week’s program will include conferences by internationally recognized researchers such as Deen Freelon (School of Journalism and Media, the University of North Carolina, USA) and Katrin Tiidenberg (Osaluskultuuri Professor / Professor of Participatory Culture BFM, Tallinn University, Estonia) and Warren Pearce (iHuman, the University of Sheffield, UK).

During five days of intense work, participants will have the chance to attend lectures and presentations, as well as deepen their knowledge in practical sessions, all taught in English. In addition to these activities, specialists and researchers invite participants to integrate projects and work from a specific problem.

As part of the Digital Media Winter Institute 2022, SMART Data Sprint is planned to take place in a hybrid format (combining online and face-to-face sessions), respecting the security measures inherent to COVID-19.

Applications open on November 15, 2021, and close on January 20, 2022. The initiative also offers partial scholarships. All information is now available on SMART’s research blog.
