December 1, 2015, Pre-symposium Workshops and Tutorials
Understanding social systems via computational approaches and new kinds of data
Based on the success of the one-day CSS Winter Symposium 2014 with more than 100 attendees in Cologne last year, we had decided to organize a follow-up event in December 2015.
The CSS Winter Symposium 2015 included:
- an exciting program featuring a series of invited talks that provided different perspectives on current advances and limitations of computational social science
- an open call for contributed posters and presentations that provided opportunities for computational social scientists to present and discuss their own work.
- the opportunity to participate in workshops and tutorials on the day prior to the symposium
- plenty of possibilities for interdisciplinary networking including an evening event at the famous Cologne Christmas markets.
We would like to thank all participants for this amazing event. We are looking forward to this year's continuation.
