Computational Social Science Summer School on Conflicts

We cordially invite applications for the
Computational Social Science Summer School on Conflicts
http://css.bigsss-bremen.de
23 July - 3 August 2018 at Jacobs University, Bremen (Germany)
Application DEADLINE: 11 February 2018

We have a focus on data-driven modeling!

The two-weeks summer school serves as a RESEARCH INCUBATOR linking social science research on conflicts with computational methods. During the summer school, participants are introduced to methods of computational social sciences (CSS) and conflict research. They will conduct a self-designed hands-on research project. On our website, we offer a set of projects that are pre-designed by our experts. Applicants can also propose their own.

We welcome applications from social scientists with a focus on conflict research and computational social scientists with interest in the topic.
We offer TRAVEL GRANTS and an additional two-day introductory workshop to R before the summer school starts for all those not familiar with the programming language or who want to refresh their skills. Women are especially encouraged to apply.
