CSS SUMMER SCHOOL 2023:
Recent Advances in Computational Social Sciences Methods
We welcome applications to the 3rd SocialComQuant Summer School on Computational Social Science. This is the third Summer School of a series of 3 organized by the project SocialComQuant.
The last school of this series will focus on RECENT ADVANCES IN COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCES METHODS with a broad overview of methodological approaches to the computational social sciences (online experiments, novel data streams, agent-based models, and network science).
The school will gather a number of diverse and outstanding speakers who will teach different methods and approaches to the computational social sciences, providing guidance through practical examples and coding exercises.
Participants will conduct small projects in which they will apply the newly learned methods, and the lecturers will supervise them.

Please indicate if you need support to cover your travel and accommodation expenses.
The school is open to anyone interested in learning about recent advances in computational social sciences methods.
Previous coding experience is not strictly required but participants are encouraged to become familiar with a scripting language like Python or R before joining the summer school.
The aim is to bring together a heterogeneous international group of people. However, we have a limited number of places for participants and everyone needs to apply by the deadline.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The application is open to people from any level of seniority who would like to learn about text processing methods. Regardless of your seniority level, please pay attention to explaining yourself and your motivations clearly in your motivation letter.
You are expected to customize your motivation letter depending on the content of the summer school that you apply for.
In the motivation letter, you are expected to give concrete reasons showing your interest in the (such as a project or paper you are currently working on or planning to work on in the future, etc.). Moreover, it will be for your advantage if you include your previous experiences related to computational social sciences, along with your future plans in the field.
We also expect to build an academic network composed of students and scholars of CSS through Social ComQuant project and its events. So, it will be a bonus if you briefly clarify why & how you want to be a part of this network.
Please, also indicate in your cover letter if you need support and if you apply for the bursary.
