Interdisciplinary work is hard: scientists from other disciplines have different problems, use different terminology, pursue different pathways to a solution and have different criteria for what makes a good solution. In order to get a better understanding of how scientists from other disciplines think and work, this workshop series dives briefly into each of 4 disciplines.

In separate 2-hour-workshops, senior researchers from sociology, philosophy, law and computer science present origin, methods, quality criteria and typical problems along with canonical approaches in their fields.

Prerequisites: for non-members of the respective discipline (beginners), no prior knowledge is required

Note: Each 2h-workshop dives into one discipline. Please register for each workshop separately. For a certificate of attendance, attendance of at least 3 workshops is required.

Preparation: Workshop instructors may ask you to read a text prior or after the workshop. Otherwise no prior knowledge is required.
