I will be giving a keynote on "Designing Computational Tools for Behavioral and Clinical Science" at the Measuring Behavior Conference, 15-17 May 2024. Our recently established AI and Animal Welfare Lab is also organizing a symposium, where I will present pain detection in equines and dogs via computer vision approaches.
We are establishing the Dutch chapter of the IEEE Biometrics Council. If you are interested in biometrics, forensics, identity science, and human behavior analysis, send me an e-mail to be included in the correspondence. IEEE membership is a plus, but not required.
The video of my talk at II. Bilkent Computational Social Science Summit on data collaboratives and big data for social good is available on YouTube.
A book launch was organized on the 23rd of November at Oxford University for our recently published Data Science for Migration and Mobility book.
On June 23, Utrecht University's Department of Media and Culture organized a book launch for four books on the theme of migration and borders in a digital and datafied world, including "The Digital Border: Migration, Technology, Power" (by Lilie Chouliaraki and Myria Georgiou, New York University Press), "Globalization in Everyday Life: Unruly Speech : Displacement and the Politics of Transgression" (by
Saskia Witteborn, Stanford University Press), "Borders as Infrastructure: The Technopolitics of Border Control" (by Huub Dijstelbloem, MIT Press), and our "Data Science for Migration and Mobility". This event, chaired by Dr. Koen Leurs, was supported by the "Co-designing a fair digital asylum procedure" research project. Details here.
I have joined Technical Committee 12 (Multimedia and Visual Information Systems) of IAPR as an information officer. Please don't hesitate to send me an email if there is something the TC12 can do for you, or vice versa.
IMISCOE's Standing Committee on Methods in Migration Research (Meth@Mig) publishes a series of video interviews on "Digitization of Migration Research Methods: Promises and Pitfalls". You can watch the first one with Marzia Rango here, and in the second one, I discuss mobile phone data for migration and mobility.
