Computational Social Science Workshop

The Computational Social Science Workshop is a new interdisciplinary seminar series featuring speakers of broad appeal in the social sciences who use computational techniques to analyze big data for research into human behavior.  This workshop is cosponsored by the Center for the Study of American Politics (CSAP) and the Yale School of Management (SOM) with support from the Initiative for Leadership and Organization at SOM.

The workshop meets monthly on selected Mondays from 11:40 a.m. to 12:55 p.m.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workshop sessions will vary with some being held virtually on Zoom and some being held in-person or in a hybrid format during Fall 2021.

This workshop is open to the Yale community only. To receive regular announcements and invitations, you must subscribe to the Computational Social Science Workshop at the link below:
