The Laboratory for Social and Cognitive Informatics housed at the St. Petersburg campus of the Higher School of Economics will host an international summer school in experimental methods and simulation for social and cognitive sciences. The school will bring together a strong international lineup of academics with a track record of excellence in experimentation and agent-based modeling in fields as diverse as cognitive and social psychology, sociology, media studies, and psycholinguistics.
The Summer School will be held in a mixed, online/offline format, designed to provide a full learning experience to students attending virtually and physically alike.

Course leader

Dr. Olessia Koltsova

Target group

The school is designed to accommodate both seasoned scholars of social and cognitive sciences looking to sharpen their methodological skills, and early-career researchers who are relatively new to experimentation and simulation. Advanced Ph.D. students are also welcome.

Course aim

EMS-SCS Summer School will introduce participants to applications of experimental methods across social, behavioral and cognitive sciences. The program will include courses and workshops aimed at both enhancing students’ conceptual understanding of the foundations of experimental research, and equipping them with hands-on experience in designing and executing experiments of their own.
