Summer Institute in Computational Social Science
June 18 - July 1
Complete applications, including letters of recommendation, must be received by Friday, February 17.
From the evening of Sunday, June 18 to the morning of Saturday, July 1,2017, the Russell Sage Foundation will sponsor the first Summer Institute in Computational Social Science, to be held at Princeton University. The purpose of the Summer Institute is to introduce graduate students and beginning faculty in the social and data sciences (broadly conceived) to computational social science—the use of digital-age data sources and methods to conduct social research. The program will highlight issues about access, privacy, and confidentiality that are raised by the emergence of computational data and methods. The institute will also introduce participants to a network of scholars across disciplines with similar interests in these new data and methods. The co-organizers and principal faculty of the Summer Institute are Christopher Bail (Duke University) and Matthew Salganik (Princeton University).
