The Spring Seminar is a training course for social scientists interested in advanced techniques of data analysis –especially data reduction – and in the application of these techniques to data. While in the lectures the logic of models and the corresponding analysis strategies will be ex-plained, during the exercises and in the practical work the participants are given the opportunity to apply these methods to data. The seminar covers three modules of one week each, to some extent being based on each other. The program has a different focus every year. Language of instruction is English. The Spring Seminar takes place annually in February/March in Cologne.
