McCormick / NICO / Kellogg 2018: 4th Annual International Conference on Computational Social Science

Hosted by the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL USA


Talks are grouped into similarly themed sessions and each talk is allotted 15 minutes. If you wish to incorporate Q&A it should be included within this 15 minutes. We recommend that one person, but no more than two, from each team present.
Rooms are equipped with PCs so presentations can be brought on an external drive; however, if presenters prefer to bring their own PC/MAC that can also be accommodated. Room chairs will be present to assist with any technical questions prior to the start of each session.
We prefer to test any links and/or videos that are included in your presentation in advance to avoid any technical complications during your presentation. If you plan to incorporate anything of this nature, please check in with the hospitality desk on the day of your presentation either during a scheduled break, lunch or 30 minutes prior to the day’s welcome address.
On the day of your presentation, please check-in with the Room Chair in your assigned room 15 minutes prior to the start of the Concurrent Session and the Moderator will go over any last minute adjustments to the schedule.

Please note that the exact day and time of your presentation will be communicated via email by mid May 2018.

Please direct any questions about this information to Yasmeen Sultana Khan at and flag ‘Presentation’ in the subject line.
