June 19 to June 23, 2023 | University of Roma Tor Vergata
Participation is restricted to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, junior faculty, and early career professionals. However, there are no restrictions based on citizenship, country of study, or country of employment. Since the event will be in-person only, there may be visa requirements participants need to consider. About 20 participants will be invited.
The Summer Institute aims to bring together computational social scientists across all levels of technical experience. Participants with less experience with social science research will be expected to complete additional training in advance of the Institute, and participants with less experience coding will be expected to complete SICSS boot camp. Students doing this preparatory work will be supported by a teaching assistant who will hold online office hours during the two months before the Institute.
We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study, especially applicants from groups currently under-represented in computational social science. We evaluate applicants along a number of dimensions:
Applicants must submit the following documents:
Inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, but not at the same time. For example, you can apply to SICSS-Roma Tor Vergata, and then if you are not accepted you can apply to one of the other locations if it has a later deadline. However, you cannot have an application under review at two locations simultaneously.
No. Every year we have more applicants than we can accept, and we would like everyone to have a chance to participate in SICSS once before we allow folks to participate twice.
