Webinar Series of the Sequence Analysis Association
The SAA is very glad to invite you to its webinar series, which proposes an online platform for people interested in the development of sequence analysis and related methods in the social sciences. The webinar offers presentations on newly published articles and is co-organized by Tim F. Liao and Matthias Studer.
Each webinar lasts for 60–75 minutes and brings together two 20-minute presentations on a similar topic followed by 5–10 minute discussions each. At the end, 15 minutes are reserved for a general discussion on the theme.
The webinar is organized online on an approximately monthly basis on Thursdays at 4 PM CET (Central European Time).
