RTI is a host and partner institution of the Summer Institute in Computational Social Science (SICSS), a two-week event held in conjunction with Princeton University that brings together 30 early career researchers interested in applying computational science methods to social science disciplines. SICSS attendees have the opportunity work on group problem sets and conduct participant-led research projects using real-world data.

During the last day of SICSS, participants will present these research projects, some of which will be conducted with RTI datasets. Specifically, some of their work will focus on:
•exploring food security in Rwanda using drone imagery
•and identifying public health trends in North Carolina through artificial population data.

These presentations will be the final session of SICSS 2019.
