Summer School 2023: Propose a Problem Set

During the August 2023 Summer School, teams of graduate students and early-career scholars will work on sets of research problems (one team for each problem). Active work is conducted Monday through Thursday, and presentations of the results are presented on Friday.

Submit a problem set now to be included on the list from which participants will choose. Problems and their questions should be suitable and appropriate for addressing in the time available, and data must be ready ahead of time. We do not want participants to spend excessive time data “wrangling” before they can begin. In coordination with the Mentors, the Summer School leadership may suggest to break up large problems and large data sets into separate questions.

Once Summer School participants have been selected, they will be presented with the full list of potential problems and indicate their 1, 2, and 3rd choice of problems on which to work.  Thus their selections will determine the final set of problems we offer. Once we know the available skill sets of of participants and the requirements of the particular problems, Summer School leaders will organize team membership to ensure that necessary and appropriate skill sets are represented across the groups. We expect to support up to 6 different teams working on 6 different problems.
