Computational Social Science Events

GESIS promotes the formation and networking of an interdisciplinary Computational Social Science community by organizing international conferences, symposia, and workshops. Among those are the 3rd International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC2S2 2017) and the 10th International AAAI Conference on Web and Social Media (ICWSM-16), the European Symposium Series on Societal Challenges in Computational Social Science, the KickOff Workshop International Research in Computational Social Science and many more.

GESIS has established a Google Group open to all scientists who are interested in Computational Social Science as a digital forum for exchanging ideas, offering jobs, announcing events, and keeping in touch. Researchers from all disciplines are most welcome to join: http://tiny.cc/cssnet

Upcoming Events

5 - 7 December, 2018, 2nd European Symposium on Societal Challenges in CSS: Bias and Discrimination (Cologne, Germany)

The Symposium is an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from a diverse range of disciplines to contribute to the definition and exploration of the societal challenges in Compuational Social Science, especially around the topics of inequality and imbalance to understand the role that digital technologies, the Web, and the algorithms used therein play in the mediation and creation of inequalities, discrimination and polarization. The series is funded by Volkswagen Foundation.

The second event of the symposium series will take place in Cologne, Germany. The overall subject will be bias and discrimination. More information can be found on the symposium website.

CSS Seminar

The GESIS Computational Social Science (CSS) Seminar is a monthly event for expert exchange on data science and social analytics (conducted in English). It is held at GESIS, Cologne (Unter Sachsenhausen 6-8, 50667 Cologne) and open to all interested. Please find more information on past and upcoming talks here.
