July 12 to July 16, 2021 | Keio University | Virtual event


From Monday, July 12 to Friday, July 16, 2021, the SICSS core sponsors will sponsor the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science at Tokyo (SICSS-Tokyo), to be held virtually at Keio University. The purpose of SICSS-Tokyo is to bring together junior researchers interested in computational social science in Japan. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived).

The instructional program will involve lectures and group problem sets in both English and Japanese. Topics covered include the analysis of digital trace data, online surveys, digital experiments, and ethics. There will be ample opportunities for students to discuss their ideas and research with the organizers and other participants in collaboration with the other SICSS sites. Because we are committed to open and reproducible research, all materials created by faculty and students for SICSS-Tokyo will be released open source.

Participation is restricted to master students, PhD studnets, postdoctoral researchers, corporate researchers who have worked for 10 years or less, and untenured faculty within 5 years of their PhD. About 20 participants will be invited, and participants are expected to fully attend and participate in the entire program. There is no cost for participating in the Summer Institute. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study.

Application materials are due Friday, March 12, 2021.

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