Hosted by the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL USA
We welcome submissions on any topic in the field of computational social science, including (a) work that advances methods and approaches in computational social science, (b) data-driven work that describes or explains social phenomena, and (c) theoretical work that generates new insights into computational social science research.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
Researchers across disciplines, faculty, graduate students, industry researchers, policy makers, and nonprofit workers are all encouraged to submit computational data-driven research and innovative computational methodological or theoretical contributions on social phenomena for consideration.
In order to present, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the presenter registration deadline of 19 April 2018.
Contributions to the conference should be submitted via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ic2s21
Please follow the abstract template guidelines [download as docx] [download as LateX] for formatting instructions. Note that abstracts should be formatted as a PDF file no larger than 20MB. Submissions that exceed the 2-page limit will be automatically rejected.
The submission should include a title, a list of 5 keywords, and an extended abstract (= main text of the submission). The abstract should outline the main theoretical contribution, data and methods used, findings, and the impact of the work, whichever is relevant. Authors are encouraged to include figures and/or tables at the end of their submission (note that figures will not count towards the page limit).
For submitting on EasyChair you will also need the information about authors and their affiliations, and an abstract summary paragraph. The summary will be used during the paper bidding phase and for assigning reviewers.
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, which will be composed of experts in computational social science.
Submissions will be non-archival, and thus the presented work can be already published, in preparation for publication elsewhere, or ongoing research.
The abstract will be selected either for oral presentation in parallel tracks or in poster presentation session.
