Redefine business in the 21st century at the intersection of computer science and social science

Save the date for this interdisciplinary event designed to connect a diverse community of researchers — academics, industry experts, open data activists, government agency workers and think tank analysts — who are dedicated to advancing social science through computational methods.

For four days, IC2S2 will be the epicenter of computational social science. Convening hundreds of attendees from more than 20 countries, the impact of IC2S2 is influential, innovative and global.

After successful events in Helsinki, Finland; Evanston, IL; and Cologne, Germany, the 4th Annual IC2S2 will return to Evanston and the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Join us in 2018 to explore the future of social research and the biggest questions facing the field of computational social science today.
