A Summer Institute in Computational Social Science will be held at the University of Cape Town from 18-29 June 2018.

The purpose of the Summer Institute in Cape Town is to bring together graduate students (strongly quantitative), postdoctoral researchers, and faculty interested in computational social science. The Summer Institute is for both social scientists (broadly conceived) and data scientists (broadly conceived).

The IUSSP has agreed to fund five members from sub-Saharan Africa to participate to this Summer Institute.
