Program

Unconference is an open space event, which builds upon the ideas and proposals of the participants. We wish to welcome all types of presentations and sessions from traditional paper sessions to more experimental formats.

The unconference is organized on Fri 19.11. at 9:00-16:00. A detailed program is below.

The descriptions of the presentations and links to the Zoom rooms are in the bottom of this page.

The following types of sessions are possible:

  1. This is what I'm researching (e.g. paper, a subject of a thesis, or unfinished research)
  2. This is what I would like to explore or understand better (e.g. discussing a new research perspective or presentation of a project idea or research data co-operation)
  3. How To (e.g., an analysis method or a data collection tool demo, possibly with some example case)
  4. Experimental session (e.g. something totally different)

Propose a topic like this

a. Add your proposal to the table below by editing this wiki page from the Edit button in the upper right corner. Also add your contact information and short description to the description list below, in accordance with the example. Also tell us if some time is impossible for you.

b. Alternatively you can add your suggestion as a comment on this page, and someone else will move it to the table for you.

c. Remember to also register for the event.

To edit this page, you can log in to the wiki with the credentials of any Finnish higher education institution via the Haka login available after you click Log in in the top right corner. You can also leave a comment without logging in.

Mikä epäkonferenssi?

Huom! Zoom-linkit ohjelman alla.

Epäkonferenssi (unconference ) on avoin ja osallistumiseen pohjaava tapahtuma, jonka agenda muodostuu osallistujien yhteistyössä. Epäkonferenssi järjestetään osallistujien tapahtumaan tuoman sisällön ympärille. Epäkonferenssiin voi kuitenkin osallistua myös ilman omaa esitystä.

Päivien sometunnisteena toimii #rajapintapäivät ja yhdistyksen löydät Twitteristä @RajapintaCo.

Tapahtumassa on 25 minuutin mittaisia sessioita, joita osallistujat voivat varata etukäteen omille aiheilleen. Ajan voi käyttää perinteiseen esitykseen keskusteluineen, mutta kannustamme kokeilemaan myös muunlaisia formaatteja ja jättämään runsaasti aikaa keskustelulle. Aiheen tulisi sopia sisällöllisesti Rajapintapäivien teemoihin: informaatioteknologia, yhteiskunta ja digitaaliset menetelmät.

Esitysten kieli on vapaa.

Seuraavantyppiset sessiot ovat mahdollisia:

  1. Tätä tutkin (esim. paperi, väitöskirjan aihe tai gradun esittely, tai keskeneräinen tutkimus)
  2. Tätä haluaisin tutkia tai ymmärtää paremmin (esim. keskustelu uudesta tutkimusnäkökulmasta tai projekti-idean tai aineistoyhteistyön esittely)
  3. How to (esim. analyysimenetelmän tai aineistonkeruutyökalun demo, mahdollisesti jonkin esimerkkitapauksen avulla)
  4. Kokeellinen sessio (esim. jotain ihan muuta)

Ehdota omaa aihettasi näin:

a. Lisää aiheesi alla olevaan taulukkoon muokkaamalla tätä wikisivua oikean ylänurkan Edit-painikkeesta. Lisää myös yhteystietosi ja lyhyt kuvaus ehdotuksestasi alla olevaan listaan, malliesimerkin mukaisesti. Kerro samalla myös, jos joku aika on sinulle mahdoton.

b. Lisäämällä ehdotuksesi tämän sivun kommentiksi, jolloin joku muu siirtää sen taulukkoon puolestasi.

c. Muista myös ilmoittautua osallistujaksi tällä lomakkeella.

Sivun muokkaamista varten voit kirjautua wikiin minkä tahansa suomalaisen korkeakoulun tunnuksilla Haka-loginin kautta oikean ylänurkan Log In -valinnan takaa. Kommentin voit jättää myös kirjautumatta. Kommenteissa voit myös kysyä neuvoa, jos jokin ei tunnu toimivan oikein!

Lisää listaan: Nimi, sähköposti, tapahtuman tyyppi, session otsikko, kuvaus

  • Pihla Toivanen & Eetu Mäkelä (Helsingin yliopisto). How to: Finnish Media Scrapers. We introduce a Python packet that we have developed for scraping four Finnish news media (Yle, Helsingin Sanomat, Iltalehti, Ilta-Sanomat). The tool allows to scrape historical data and post-process the articles.  https://github.com/hsci-r/finnish-media-scrapers 
  • Minna Vigren (Stockholm University), Marko Teräs (Tampere University) & Pekka Mertala (University of Jyväskylä): Tällä tavalla haluaisin tutkia: Digital Futures and Speculative Methods In this session, we will discuss the possibilities and challgences of using speculative methods in the research of digital futures. We will give a short introduction to various methods previously used in research, and open the discussion to evaluate and critically reflect them. Participants are welcome to share their own examples, research ideas, good practices, thoughts, and questions. 
  • Minna Vigren et al.: Tätä haluaisin tutkia: Eco-digital citizenship. This session introduces shortly the idea of 'eco-digital citizenship' developed as part of a Green and Digital Transitions funding application this autumn. The concept tackles the concern over the state of the Earth and the excessive use of planetary resources in enabling digitalisation as well as prevalent conceptualisations of digital citizenship. The session will be a discussion on the conceptual, theoretical, and methodological aspects of fostering environmentally mindful citizenship skills and possibly result in new joint activities such as book clubs, Rajapinta meetups, conference session etc.  
  • Margareta Salonen (Jyväskylän yliopisto) ja Elisa Kannasto (Vaasan yliopisto / Seinäjoen ammattikorkeakoulu). Tätä tutkimme:
    Sosiaalisen median kommenttien analyysi multimodaalista näkökulmasta digitaalisen journalismin ja poliittisen viestinnnän tutkimuksessa.
    Esittelemme tuoreen kirjallisuuskatsauksemme tuloksia.
  • Media-alustojen sosiaalinen vastuu / Social responsibility and accountability of digital media platforms (Fishbowl panel by MAPS-project Salla-Maaria Laaksonen, Matti Pohjonen, Minna Vigren et al.). This is an open panel that follows the fishbowl format - welcome to join the discussion! More details TBA.

  • Virpi Salojärvi (University of Vaasa/Helsinki) & Laura Sibinescu (University of Helsinki). Tätä tutkimme: Actor-Emotion Analysis in Social and Legacy Media: The #DeniedMyVote movement in the 2019 European Parliamentary Elections. We will discuss our article draft where we examine to which extent are the core activists able to propagate their narrative in a Twitter based movement in the context of Brexit.
  • Anton Berg & Matti Nelimarkka (Helsinki Social Computing Group, University of Helsinki). How to: Image recognition services for computer science: Computer vision can be used to automatically try to find out what images represent. However, image recognition services differ in the tags they provide. The Social Computing Group develops a computational tool that allows the comparison of services with selected images, and thus prevents, among other things, possible research biases.
  • Jukka Huhtamäki (Tampere University) & Anu Harju (University of Helsinki): How to: Sharing a Twitter dataset through dehydration and rehydration We will give a description of our work-in-progress tutorial that will be published in SAGE Research Methods collection on sharing Twitter data. In addition to going through the technical process, we invite you to discuss the limits of what Twitter Terms of Service gives to researchers. In particular, we ask: are we able to investigate the removed tweets?
  • Onni Aarne (University of Helsinki): This is what I'm researching: What kinds of content is the TikTok recommender system showing to different types of users? I describe how I've used social media bots emulating different types of "lurkers" to explore what kinds of content one may find on TikTok, and to reverse engineer how the recommender system works. This work has been done as part of master's thesis work in the Social Computing Group, in collaboration with Long Play, under the supervision of Matti Nelimarkka (UH) and Johanna Vehkoo (LP).
  • Tuomas Heikkilä (University of Helsinki): This is what I'm researching: Contesting the Covid-19 Consensus: Connective Action of Pseudoanonymous Political Nano-influencers on Finnish Twitter. I describe the preliminary analysis done on an paper I am currently working with Salla-Maaria Laaksonen (UH, UnCoCo project) and Esa Väliverronen (UH, MEX project) regarding pseudonanonymous Twitter activity during the corona crisis.
  • Aleksi Knuutila (University of Jyväskylä) This is what I'm researching: Generative visual models as speculative methods for social science: Exploring the latent space of London with Generative Adverserial Networks. Preliminary results from training a GAN on Streetview images from London, and a brief discussion of whether guided creation of synthetic data could be a method for social science. The GAN is trained on images, and then contextual data from the Indices of Multiple Deprivation is used to guide walks in the model's latent space, resulting in something like the "visual correlates" of deprivation and privilege.
  • Pyry Kantanen (University of Turku) & Leo Lahti (University of Turku): This is what I would like to explore: Where and how users and contributors engage with open source software development projects? Some evidence from rOpenGov R package development projects. We provide a summary of received contributions in rOpenGov projects via GitHub pull requests and feedback via issues, email, Google Groups and Gitter. Our material will provide a starting point for open discussion on accessibility and inclusiveness in open source software development projects.
  • Fishbowl: Beyond collaboration overload We pondewr how to better manage time and decrease efforts in collaboration and communications - to secure more time and space for deep thinking. For perspectivces on the topic, see Collaboration overload is shinking productivity, HBR ja tää tiivistänee Collaborative overload, HRB. Salla, Matti & Aleksi server as initial speakers.
  • Canonical literature on sociology of meta(verse) - let's discuss what we should read to understand metaverse. Matti Nelimarkka organises
  • Configurations of Participations in Participatory Budgeting - Participatory budgeting is a popular democratic innovation of public institutions that is increasingly supported by digital platforms. Like any other forms of technology, these platforms are not value-free and neutral; their design, configuration and deployment manifest assumptions and configure participatory behavior. To understand the what kinds of configurations occur and what kinds of democratic values they manifest, we studied 31 participatory budgeting cases in Spain, France and, Finland, all supported with the same technical infrastructure Decidim. We examined the technical configurations and the participatory process design of all these cases, demonstrating a high degree of variance across the 31 cases. Specifically, we identified 25 different technical configurations and 15 different participatory process designs on a singular budgeting platform. These process designs manifest individual and collaborative assumptions about expected state-society interactions and demonstrate citizen-driven and managerial approaches to participatory budgeting. Based on these findings, we highlight the dilemma for civic technology designers: to what degree should platforms be open for configurations and related politics of customization? and, which values should always be enforced by platforms?
