Outline

Center for Computational Social Science (CCSS) , Kobe University

Center for Computational Social Science (CCSS) of Kobe University promotes collaborative research in computational social sciences which is a blend of social science, computational science and data science. We aim to establish and systemaize computational social science as a new social science based on computational science and data sciecne, also we are aiming at a world-leading international research center in this field.
This center was established as an internal organization of the RIEB on March 15, 2017, and was established as a fundamental research promotion organization of the Kobe University on April 1, 2018

Center for Computational Social Science (CCSS) will conduct the following projects to achieve the above objectives

  1. Advanced research in computational social science
  2. Technological development to promote research in computational social science
  3. Creating a database to promote research in computational social science
  4. Other necessary projects for promotion and dissemination of academic research in computational social science

Center for Computational Social Science (CCSS) will conduct the above projects in the following units.

  1. Simulation Unit
  2. Data Analysis Unit
  3. Database Unit
