Summer Institute Details

IDeaS Summer Institute (June 3-4, 2023):
The IDeaS Summer Institute is an intense, hands-on training camp that teaches participants about the theories, methods, and tools to identify and combat disinformation, hate speech, and extremism online. This institute is aimed at graduate students, faculty, and personnel from industry, education and government who want to learn more about social-cybersecurity, an emerging field of research and policy.

This is an in-depth workshop on the state-of-the-art in social-cybersecurity. Topics covered include: how social media is used to spread disinformation, hate-speech and extremism online, types of technologies used to identify, combat, or measure the impact of these influence campaigns, and how communities can be more resilient in the face of such campaigns. Sessions will include seminars and technology demonstrations. Additional material for those who want to learn several of the key tools will be available.

CASOS Summer Institute (June 5-11, 2023):
The CASOS Summer Institute is a week-long event that provides an intense hands-on introduction to network analysis and visualization from a combined social-network, network-science, link-analysis and dynamic network analysis perspective. Social network, high-dimensional networks, semantic networks, and meta-networks are covered as are network dynamics and geo-spatial networks.

Participants learn about current trends, practices, and tools available for analyzing complex dynamic systems as networks from end-to-end – extracting data from texts, network analysis and visualization, and simulation of networks. Basic social network and dynamic network measures and clustering for one-mode, bi-partite and multi-mode data are covered. Network statistic, analysis and visualization techniques are covered for static and dynamic networks. Techniques for extracting networks from text and social media are covered. Simulation techniques for forecasting change in these networks and their impact on the diffusion of ideas and beliefs are covered. Key issues associated with social media analytics, and big data are covered. Participants gain experience through a series of hands-on exercises. Data sets are provided for these exercises; however, participants who are attending in person can bring their own data and use it in these exercises if they are attending in-person. An examination of social network methods, complexity theory and procedures for integrating network-based metrics and statistics into computational models completes the program.
