The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from different fields and practitioners from around the world to facilitate a conversation on the use of innovative digital data sources, new methodologies, empirical findings, and critical challenges of studying migration and mobility in the digital era.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- New data sources for mobility and migration research, challenges and opportunities
- Internal and international migration, short- and long-term mobility
- Modeling and predicting human mobility patterns
- Machine learning and AI methods for studying mobility
- Longitudinal analyses and empirical studies of mobility and migration
- Socio-economic and environmental drivers of migration
- Integration and segregation of migrant populations
- Measuring the impact of natural disasters, conflicts, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic on migration
- Access to mobility data, open science, and privacy concerns
- Evaluation and development of migration policy

MIMODE 2021 is currently scheduled to be held in person in Lyon, France as a satellite event of CCS2021. However, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we may expect the workshop to turn into a hybrid or fully online event.
Presenting authors can indicate their availability to travel to Lyon in October 2021 in the submission platform. We will consider researchers’ needs and organize our satellite event accordingly as we approach the date of the event. More details will follow soon.
The satellite is organized by research scientists in the Laboratory of Digital and Computational Demography at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (MPIDR) in Germany (Daniela Perrotta, Samin Aref, and Jisu Kim). Contact the organizers at firstname.lastname@example.org
