HFD-Themenwoche 2018 The HFD (German Forum for Higher Education in the Digital Age) hosted its second conference week in Berlin and I attended the Hochschulforum Digitalisierung (HFD) Themenwoche/conference “Shaping the Digital Turn” for a session on Data Literacy Education on 28 Sep 2018 at the Allianz Forum Berlin for the “Future Skills Day”. During this final session of the conference the most promising universities applying for grants in the Data Literacy Education program presented themselves in a public jury meeting during this event (with a final selection of for proposals).


ABM Summer School for Social Scientists Participated in the BEHAVE 2018 Agent-based Modelling summer school for Social Scientists from 3–7 September in Brescia, Italy. This workshop has been offered by the team around Flaminio Squazzoni and Simone Gabbriellini (big shout-out to Nicolas Payette and Federico Bianchi) with guest lectures by the incredible Nigel Gilbert and AndrĂ© Grow. The workshop is incredibly useful, packed with hands-on coding work and theoretical material — and the BEST food you can imagine.
