CDHD Seminar Series - 2019 Program

The Complex Human Data Hub has introduced a new type of seminar this year. We thought we would try something a little different by alternating a journal club style gathering with a traditional seminar. Each speaker presents for two weeks. In the first week, they set a reading and facilitate a discussion. In the second week, they give a normal seminar. The intention for this structure is to allow topics to be explored in more depth than is usually possible in a seminar.

Current Schedule:

Time: 1-2PM Selected Tuesdays
Location: Latham Theatre (Room 102 Redmond Barry Building, University of Melbourne)

  • Dr Frank Mollica - 1pm Tuesday Sep 03, 2019
  • A/Prof Charles Kemp - 1pm Tuesday Sep 10, 2019

Earlier this year, we heard from an excellent lineup of presenters for the Seminar Series, including presentations from:

  • A/Prof Daniel Little
  • Prof Philip Smith
  • Dr Johan Koskinen
  • Dr Adam Osth
  • Dr Frank Mollica
  • Dr Nikita Basov

Dan Little’s sessions were on categorization response time data. Philip Smith shared a paper about diffusion modelling of speeded decision making. Johan Koskinen sessions were on Bayesian aggregation of perceived organisational ties. Adam Osth covered global semantic similarity effects in recognition memory. Dr Frank Mollica spoke about a formal model of numerical concept learning. Dr Nikita Basov presented a paper on mixed-method socio-semantic network analysis of European creative collective

In the coming weeks, we will be posting news articles about each of the talks from the from the first half of the year, as well as for the upcoming speakers for the 2019 Complex Human Data Hub Seminar Series.
