2022年8月1日から8月5日にかけて、Summer Institute in Computational Social Science のサテライト・ワークショップSICSS-Tokyoを、オンライン上で行います。SICSS-Tokyoでは、主に日本にいる若手研究者が計算社会科学(Computational Social Science)の方法論を体系的に学び、情報共有、研究活動を始める場を提供します。この夏期ワークショップは、(広義の)社会科学および(広義の)データ・サイエンスを対象とします。このイベントは日本計算社会科学会の協賛のもと行われます。





From August 1 to August 5, 2022, we will virtually hold the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science at Tokyo (SICSS-Tokyo). The purpose of SICSS-Tokyo is to bring together master students, graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, beginning faculty, and corporate researchers interested in computational social science. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived). This event is organized in cooperation with the Society for Computational Social Science of Japan.

The instructional program will involve lectures and group problem sets in both English and Japanese. All events will take place online. Topics covered include analyzing digital trace data, online surveys, digital experiments, and ethics. Participants will have ample opportunities 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, Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers, corporate researchers who have worked for ten years or less, and untenured faculty within five years of their Ph.D. We will invite about 20 participants and expect them 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.

Now the second recruitment is open! Application materials are due Friday, June 17, 2022.
