SCIENCE OF SCIENCE SUMMER SCHOOL (S4) 2021 – July 26 to August 6, 2021 - Virtual - Apply by July 2
This free, NSF-funded summer school is an intensive two-week school to happen between July 26-30 and August 2-6, 2021. It will be virtually hosted by Syracuse University's iSchool. The first week will be an intensive learning experience with synchronous and asynchronous materials, group projects, and social events. The second week will be more of a traditional conference where you will attend lectures and schedule one-on-one meetings with our fantastic lineup of mentors. Students of all levels across the world are invited to participate (the first week will have events in multiple time zones!)
S4 will introduce you to foundational and emerging questions, theories, and methods for science of science. We will survey how knowledge is produced and the role of individuals, teams, countries, institutions, and funding agencies in making this possible. We will review machine learning, deep learning, network science, and other methods to answer these questions. The school will be heavily based on Python, scikit-learn, TensorFlow/Keras, networkx, and the JupyterLab environment. We will provide a curated web-based environment with all software packages and relevant datasets pre-installed, so you will not need anything installed on your computer.
Week 1: Synchronous and asynchronous learning on programming, data manipulation, analysis, and modeling with ML/AI/deep learning, group discussions, social events.
Week 2: Presentation and interaction with mentors (see below) and invited speakers. Project presentations.
