There are a host of things one can do this summer related to computational social science, both within and without the university. We have compiled a partial list below (and we welcome suggestions!):
- ICOS Big Data Summer Camp. The camp will run again this summer here at UM. A number of our members have been participants or leaders there in the past and found it to be a great way to build skills and network with other Michigan people. Information from last year’s workshop is here.
- ICPSR Summer Courses teach a variety of CSS relevant skills and methods, including network analysis, machine learning, text analysis, math for social scientists, R, and more! They also have scholarships.
- Summer Institute in Computational Social Science at Princeton University. (2 weeks.)
- Data Science for Social Good (DSSG) at the University of Chicago. (3 months, paid.)
- The Santa Fe Institute (SFI)
