Computational Tools for Social Scientists Workshop 2021
We are holding our annual workshop for econ and other social science graduate students on
Computational Tools for Social Scientists
from Aug 18-20, 2021. The goal of this workshop is to make early-career researchers in the social sciences (e.g. Ph.D. students and early faculty) aware of computational tools and toolkits that will allow them to more efficiently and reproducibly conduct their research. We will showcase computer-oriented techniques and tools, from basic command line tools on Windows, Linux, and Mac, to version control, to optimization and parallelization techniques. These methods are useful not just for high-performance computing, but by necessity make research reproducible. If you touch a computer as part of your research, you should come!
