Howard University and Mathematica are partnering to launch the first Summer Institute in Computational Social Science (SICSS) program hosted by a historically Black college or university.

SICSS-Howard/Mathematica will be held virtually from June 14 to 25, 2021, and is uniquely poised to highlight how innovative social science research methods and real-world data can help counter anti-Black racism and inequity. The free, two-week program is open to graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and junior faculty. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists and data scientists.

The two-week interactive and instructional program includes lectures, group problem sets, and participant-led research projects. Outside speakers who conduct and use computational social science research in academia, industry, government, and other settings will add real-world insights to the program. Together, participants will explore topics such as text as data, website scraping, digital field experiments, nonprobability sampling, mass collaboration, and ethics.
