Our user community is growing constantly in a number of research fields, which is a very positive development for us! In order to meet the high demand for training and information about the data, we try to hold as many regular user workshops and data use seminars as possible. This year, we will be offering three more open workshops for our users. The Datalab Workshop at the University of Bielefeld, organized in cooperation with the GESIS, RatSWD and SFB 882, will be held from September 23 to 27. Our SOEPcampus@Uni Mannheim in Mannheim will take place from June 24 to 26. You’ll find information about registration and other details on the workshop websites: http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/soz/datalab2013/ and http://gess.uni-mannheim.de/CDSS/Program/Spring%202013/.
In addition to our German open user workshops in Mannheim and Bielefeld, we will also be organizing an international workshop (in English) in cooperation with Johannes Giesecke (University of Bamberg) and the Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences (BAGSS). We have reserved some spaces in this workshop for our international and non-German-speaking users.
The workshop will be held on September 17 and 18, 2013, at the University of Bamberg.
The workshop offers participants the opportunity to gain a broad, well-grounded understanding of how to work with the SOEP data. In addition to providing an overview of the structure and possibilities for analysis offered by the SOEP, the workshop will focus on questions about the sample and weighting, international comparisons based on the SOEP, and intergenerational analysis. Participation is free of charge.
