21-23 November 2005, Basic Course "Research methods and methodology for Information and
Knowledge Systems (IKS)"

Date: 21-23 November 2005
Location: Conference Center Woudschoten, Zeist
Target audience: (SIKS) Ph.D. Students

On 21, 22, and 23 November 2005, the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) organizes the annual three-day course "Research methods and methodology for IKS". The location will be Conference center Woudschoten in Zeist. The course will be given in English. Although the course is primarily intended for SIKS-Ph.D. students, other participants are not excluded.

The primary goal of this hands-on course is to enable Ph.D. students to make a good research design for their own research project. To this end, it provides an interactive training in various elements of research design, such as the conceptual design and the research planning. But the course also contains a general introduction to the philosophy of science (and particularly to the philosophy of mathematics, computer science and AI). And, it addresses such divergent topics as "the case-study method", "elementary research methodology for the empirical sciences" and "empirical methods for computer science".
