Volkswagen Foundation will fund three "BIGSSS Summer Schools in Computational Social Science: Data-Driven Modelling of Conflicts, Migration, and Social Cohesion" in the framework of its call for International Research in Computational Social Sciences. The project is a joint endeavor of Jan Lorenz, Klaus Boehnke, and Adalbert Wilhelm from Jacobs University Bremen (Germany), Andreas Flache from University of Groningen (Netherlands), Francesco Mola from Università di Cagliari (Italy), and myself. The three summer schools will focus consecutively on conflict, migration, and social cohesion and are scheduled to take place in Bremen, Groningen, and Cagliari in 2018, 2019, and 2020, respectively. More information will follow soon.
