Summer Institute in Computational Social Science Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan (online), Poznań
The idea of the Institute is to bring together graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior faculty for 2 weeks of intensive study and interdisciplinary research in legal sciences. Topics covered include (but are not limited to):
– Application of statistics and R-programming in law;
– Predictive analytics, e.g. judgements prediction, risk assessment;
– Social media as research tools for social sciences;
– A survey in legal research;
– Text as data, including but not limited to legal texts.
The program involves carrier talks and lectures of core faculty and visiting speakers from academia, industry, and government. The discussion will be followed by group problem sets and participant-led research projects under the supervision of teaching assistants.
Participation is restricted to MA students, graduate students (master and doctoral programs), postdoctoral researchers, and untenured faculty within 7 years of their PhD. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study, especially from groups currently under-represented in computational social science. About twenty participants will be invited and expected to fully attend the two-week program.
The Summer School is organised by the Faculty of Law and Administration and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of AMU. There is no tuition required to attend the Institute. All materials created by faculty and students for the Summer Institute will be released open source.
Application materials are due May 1st (midnight, GMT+1) and might be delivered through our Online Form.
