The purpose of the Summer Institutes is to bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and beginning faculty interested in computational social science. The Summer Institutes are for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived). Since 2017, our Institutes have provided more than 700 young scholars with cutting-edge training in the field and the opportunity to develop new research collaborations that break down disciplinary barriers. There is no tuition required to attend the Summer Institutes, and many locations cover some or all travel, accommodation, and meal expenses.

Applications are opening for Summer Institutes in Computational Social Science (SICSS) 2021! Twenty locations around the globe will be hosting remote programs this year, most of which will happen in June (though each location determines it’s own dates). Locations also determine their own application window, with some opening now!

The program is cost free and taught in R. You can see examples of previous program curriculum here.
