IC2S2 2019 – 5th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE

July 17-20, 2019

University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Deadline for abstracts: 5 February 2019


This summer the fifth edition of IC2S2 is hosted by the University of 
Amsterdam, The Netherlands. IC2S2 brings together researchers in 
computational science, complexity, and social science, and provides a 
platform for new work in the field of computational social science. 
Following a day of tutorials on July 17, contributed abstracts are 
presented orally in parallel thematic sessions or as posters at the 
three day conference, which takes place at the University of Amsterdam 
in the Netherlands from July 18 to 20.

SPECIAL SESSION “5 YEARS OF IC2S2"

================================================


After an opening talk by Duncan Watts (Microsoft Research), several 
renowned computational social scientists from the field will engage in a 
panel discussion on the future of the field of computational social 
science. Among confirmed panelists are:


Ulrik Brandes (ETH Zürich)

Sandra González-Bailón (University of Pennsylvania)

Helen Margetts (University of Oxford, The Alan Turing Institute)Markus 
Strohmaier (RWTH Aachen University)

Duncan Watts (Microsoft Research)

        CALL FOR PAPERS (ABSTRACTS)


        ===================================================


IC2S2 solicits abstracts from researchers in the social sciences with a 
clear component of computation, simulation or data analysis or data 
science. This includes for example sociology, psychology, communication 
science, anthropology, media studies, political science, public health, 
and economics. In addition, contributions from computer science, data 
science, and computational science with real-world applications in the 
social sciences or related fields, are welcome. We emphatically welcome 
abstracts that try to integrate both components. This is not limited to 
empirical studies; more general theoretical contributions are also welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  *

    Network analysis of social systems

  *

    Large-scale social experiments

  *

    Agent-based or other simulations of social phenomena

  *

    Text analysis and natural language processing (NLP) of social phenomena

  *

    Cultural patterns and dynamics

  *

    Computational science studies (sociology of science)

  *

    Social news curation and collaborative filtering

  *

    Social media studies

  *

    Theoretical discussions in computational social science

  *

    Causal inference and computational methods for social science

  *

    Ethics in computational social sciences

  *

    Reproducibility in computational social science

  *

    Large scale infrastructure in computational social science

  *

    Novel digital data sources

  *

    Computational analyses for addressing societal challenges

  *

    Methods and analyses of observational social data

  *

    Computational social science research in industry

Contributions to the conference should be submitted via EasyChair 
at:https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ic2s2-2019 
<https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ic2s2-2019>

Please follow the extended abstract template guidelines for Word 
(ic2s2-word-template.docx 
<https://2019.ic2s2.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/ic2s2-word-template.docx>) 
and LaTeX (ic2s2-latex-template.zip 
<https://2019.ic2s2.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/ic2s2-latex-template.zip>) 
for formatting instructions. Note that abstracts should be submitted as 
a PDFfile no larger than 20MB. Submissions that exceed the 2-page limit 
(including figures and references) will be automatically rejected.

The extended abstract should include a title and a list of 5 keywords, 
but no authors’ names or affiliations. The abstract should outline the 
main contribution, data and methods used, results, and the impact of the 
work. Authors are encouraged to include one figure in their submission 
(the figure counts towards the page limit).

Please do not include authors’ names and affiliations in the submitted 
document, as peer review will be double blind. Each extended abstract 
will be reviewed by multiple members of the Program Committee, composed 
of experts in computational social science.

When submitting on EasyChair you will be asked to provide information 
about the authors and their affiliations and to include a one-sentence 
summaryof the extended abstract (20-50 words). The summary will be used 
for assigning reviewers. You can indicate a preference for an oral 
presentation or a poster presentation, but your preference may not be 
honored in the final decision.

Submissions will be non-archival, and the presented work can be already 
published, in preparation for publication elsewhere, or ongoing 
research. Submission implies willingness to present a talk or poster at 
the conference.

The deadline for abstract submission is February 5, 2019.
