Trainings

Summer Institutes in Computational Social Science (SICSS)

The Summer Institutes in Computational Social Science (SICSS) were created to provide free training to the next generation of researchers at the intersection of social science and data science— and to incubate cutting-edge research across disciplinary boundaries. We provide state-of-the art training in a range of different areas in computational social science from ethics to text analysis and mass collaboration. These lectures assume a basic, working knowledge of the R language.
