Call for Applications – Summer Institute in Computational Social Science, Seattle

Posted: 4/29/2018 (Conference)

From Monday, June 18 to Friday, June 22, the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science is sponsoring a Seattle partner location hosted at the University of Washington. SICSS is for both social scientists and data scientists, broadly conceived, and the program is intended for graduate students and others doing computational social science research at the University of Washington and in the broader Seattle and Puget Sound area. Participants in SICSS will gain hands-on experience in working with computational methods, and will be pushed to think more deeply about applying those methods to social-science research problems. A primary goal of SICSS is to bring together scholars from a range of computational and social-science background, to share their complementary strengths and enhance each other’s work.

To apply, please submit a paragraph expressing your interest in the program, a current CV, and your responses to a few questions about background and interests to https://goo.gl/forms/nH97Fg7bZ7XsXmQ73. Applications will be due May 4, with decision notifications by May 18. Due to limited space, up to twenty-five participants will be invited.

SICSS-Seattle is sponsored by the Sloan Foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation, and the eScience Institute and the Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology at the University of Washington. There is no cost to participate.
