Lipari Summer School: Algorithms, Data, and Models for Social and Urban Systems


Lipari Summer School will address the role of GIS, social media, big social data, agent-based models, network models, and their integration in the study, design, and implementation of social and urban systems.



Lipari Island Algorithms, Data, and Models for Social and Urban Systems

July 26 - Aug 1, 2015
Lipari Island, Italy

Application Deadline:
May 31, 2015

Social and urban systems have been the focus of social science theory and research for centuries, but only until recently have computational approaches enabled novel explorations of challenging and enduring research questions and the opening of new frontiers for investigation. What is the role of Computational Social Science in advancing the science of social and urban systems? Which advanced algorithms and data structures play a key role in these investigations?

In 2015 our Lipari Summer School in CSS will address questions such as the role of GIS (geographic/geospatial information systems), social media, big social data, agent-based models, network models, and their integration in the study, design, and implementation of social and urban systems. Students are encouraged to apply early because enrollment is competitive and limited.
