Laboratory Profile

The e-Society Laboratory is a multi-disciplinary, international research and learning space centering its work around individuals, social groups, organizational networks, as well as public administrations in the age of digitalization.

 

Classical IT projects are envisaged in a broader environmental and social perspective, encompassing the exchange with experts from urban planning, mariculture and farming, management, linguistics and sociology, but also from engineering and physics. One of the distinctive features of the laboratory is its international character. The working language is English.

Student members of the Laboratory are typically expected to discuss results of their work at professional meetings, including international conferences, while graduate research projects are to produce results that would be reported in international journals. Graduate student work is often coupled with overseas partners of the laboratory that include research groups from Universitas Brawijaya, Universitas Dinamika (STIKOM Surabaya), and The Technische Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm.
Laboratory social events include birthday tea-and-cake parties, cross-cultural picnics, and city tours.

Important note to potential applicants: Please be informed that at the laboratory, we do not deal with research grounded in military, medicine, pure mathematics, finance, computer games, and stock markets in principle. Please, also be informed that those applying to a Graduate Program are expected to have a substantial undergraduate background in probability theory, basic statistics, artificial intelligence, and programming.
