The purpose of the Summer Institute is to bring together graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and beginning faculty interested in computational social science. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived). The co-organizers and principal faculty of the Summer Institute are Christopher Bail and Matthew Salganik.
There will also be seven partner locations run by alumni of the 2017 Summer Institute, which will be hosted at the following universities: Hunter CollegeNew York UniversityNorthwestern UniversityUniversity of Cape TownUniversity of ColoradoUniversity of Helsinki, and University of Washington.


For those unable to attend in person, we will be live-streaming each day from approximately 9:00am to 5:30pm ET. Group exercises and some of the visiting speaker’s lectures will not be live-streamed. No registrations will be required to watch the livestream. We will post addition information about the livestream here once it is avaiable.
