June 01 to June 25, 2021 | Kadir Has University | Virtual event


From Tuesday, June 1 to Friday, June 25, 2021, Kadir Has University will host a virtual partner event of Summer Institute in Computational Social Science. In addition to the SICSS core sponsors, SICSS-Istanbul is sponsored by Kadir Has University. The purpose of the Summer Institute is to bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career faculties interested in computational social science. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived).

The instructional program will involve lectures, group problem sets, and participant-led research projects. There will also be outside speakers who conduct computational social science research in a variety of settings, such as academia, industry, and government. Topics covered include text as data, website scraping, digital field experiments, machine learning, and ethics. There will be ample opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with the organizers, other participants, and visiting speakers. Because we are committed to open and reproducible research, all materials created by faculty and students for the Summer Institute will be released open source.

Participation is restricted to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and early career faculties. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study, especially applicants from groups currently under-represented in computational social science. About 10-15 participants will be invited, and participants are expected to fully attend and participate in the entire program.

Application materials are due February 28, 2021.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all events will take place online.
