Applications are open for SSSI 2020!

The Institute will be held at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis, July 27-31.

At this 5-day Summer Training Institute, participants will get a hands-on introduction to systems science methods that enhance the social impact of health and social science research. Led by experienced systems science scholars, this in-depth training institute will focus on four major systems science methods: Agent-based Modeling, Group Model Building, 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.

Learn more about the 4 tracks.

COVID-19 update: We are closely monitoring the global outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) as the situation continues to develop. We hope and expect that the situation will be resolved well before the July Institute, but we will continue to monitor and communicate with Institute applicants and participants in the coming months. In the unlikely event that we would need to reschedule or cancel the Institute, we will refund all tuition payments to attendees, including the nonrefundable deposit.
