Applications are open for the 1st annual Systems Science for Social Impact Summer Training Institute, to be held at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis from July 29 to August 2, 2019. The co-organizers and principal faculty are Ross Hammond, Douglas Luke, and Peter Hovmand.
At this five-day training, participants will get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods with a focus on three main tracks: agent-based modeling, social network analysis and system dynamics. Participants will review the major concepts of their chosen track/method, learn analytic best practices, and apply the methods to real-world data. The workshops are designed for faculty, advanced graduate students, recent graduates, and professionals from public health, social work, and social sciences.
The application process is open; candidates will be accepted on a rolling basis through July 1, 2019.
