This is the first in a series of three symposia that discuss societal challenges in computational social sciences. In the first year, the focus will be on “Inequality and Imbalance” (London, 2017). Future events will be focused on “Bias and Discrimination” (Cologne, 2018) and “Polarization and Radicalization” (Zurich, 2019).
The Symposium 2017 (November 15th - 17th) will be a three-day event consisting of:
- a two-days, single-track conference featuring a series of invited talks that will provide different perspectives on challenges in the area of Inequality and Imbalance
- a day of multiple satellite events, including workshop and tutorials
- an open call for contributed presentations that will provide opportunities for computational social scientists to present and discuss their own work
- an open call for workshop and tutorial organization that will provide opportunities for computational social scientists to gather focus groups around the latest trends in Computational Social Science
- plenty of possibilities for interdisciplinary networking
- an evening “science slam” with a selection of short scientific talk where scientists present their own research in front of a non-expert audience
The deadline for workshops and tutorials proposal submission is September 8th and September 30th for abstract submission.
