IC2S2 brings together researchers in computational science, complexity, and social science, and provides a platform for new work in the field of computational social science. Contributed abstracts can be presented orally in parallel thematic sessions or as posters at the three day conference, which takes place at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands from July 18 to 20. The main conference is preceded by one day of tutorials and exciting introductory events for young scholars on July 17.

Regular abstract submission

IC2S2 solicits abstracts from researchers in the social sciences with a clear component of computation, simulation or data analysis or data science. This includes for example sociology, psychology, communication science, anthropology, media studies, political science, public health, and economics. In addition, contributions from computer science, data science, and computational science with real-world applications in the social sciences or related fields, are welcome. We emphatically welcome abstracts that try to integrate both components. This is not limited to empirical studies; more general theoretical contributions are also welcome.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Network analysis of social systems
  • Large-scale social experiments
  • Agent-based or other simulations of social phenomena
  • Text analysis and natural language processing (NLP) of social phenomena
  • Cultural patterns and dynamics
  • Computational science studies (sociology of science)
  • Social news curation and collaborative filtering
  • Social media studies
  • Theoretical discussions in computational social science
  • Causal inference and computational methods for social science
  • Ethics in computational social sciences
  • Reproducibility in computational social science
  • Large scale infrastructure in computational social science
  • Novel digital data sources
  • Computational analyses for addressing societal challenges
  • Methods and analyses of observational social data
  • Computational social science research in industry
