BIDS and D-Lab launch the Computational Social Science Forum

September 3, 2020

The Computational Social Science Forum is a new weekly discussion series that provides an informal setting for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and scholarship at the intersection of social science and data science. 

Weekly meetings will be hosted by researchers from BIDS and D-Lab, and participants will engage in a variety of activities such as presentations of work in progress, discussions and critiques of recent papers, introductions to new tools and methods, as well as discussions around ethics, fairness, inequality, responsible conduct of research, and professional development. 

This group welcomes social scientists with interests in data science methods and tools, and data scientists with interests in public policy and the social, behavioral, and health sciences. Participants will include graduate students, postdocs, staff, and faculty, who will be encouraged to attend regularly in order to foster community around improving computational social science research, supporting the development and research of group members, and fostering new collaborations.

This Forum is organized as part of the Computational Social Science Training Program, and interested community members are invited to use this registration form to receive the schedule and access links. Please contact BIDS Research Training Program Manager Adam Anderson for more information.
