2022 CSDI Workshop

After canceling the 2020 CSDI Workshop and moving the 2021 CSDI Workshop to a virtual platform, we are excited to announce that the 2022 CSDI Workshop will be in person. We are keeping a close eye on the trajectory of the global pandemic and will adjust our plans as necessary, but we are very hopeful to see everyone in person next spring!

We are also thrilled the 2022 CSDI Workshop will be hosted by CDSP, the Center for Data and Methods of Sciences Po, and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS). The workshop will take place April 4th – April 6th at the Condorcet Campus, Paris, France.

We are very grateful for all the planning work that CDSP and CNRS did for the 2020 CSDI Workshop, and even more grateful that they graciously agreed to host (again!) the 2022 CSDI Workshop.
