Based on the success of first two events in 2014 and 2015 we have decided to continue to organize a follow-up event: we are delighted to announce that the 3rd CSS Winter Symposium will take place in Cologne on November 30th and December 1st, 2016.

The CSS Winter Symposium 2016 will be a two-day event consisting of:

    an exciting program featuring a series of invited talks that will provide different perspectives on current advances and limitations of computational social science,

    an open call for contributed posters and presentations that will provide opportunities for computational social scientists to present and discuss their own work,

    plenty of possibilities for interdisciplinary networking including an evening event at the famous Cologne Christmas markets.

Aim and scope

We invite submissions that describe research results or tools and methods for computational social science.  Exemplary topics for submissions include but are not limited to:

    Theories and models explaining the dynamics in social systems, networks, communities and teams
    Studies of political discourse and spread of opinions, attitudes and information on the web
    Studies of cultures and conflicts, segregation, discrimination, prejudice via new kinds of data
    Social-/Computational aspects of health, life style, sports and diet
    Social-/Computational aspects of human movement, mobility and urban planning
    Mixed methods and techniques (e.g. obtrusive/unobtrusive methods)
    Methods to deal with biased, selective and incomplete observational data on the Web
    Tools that detect and prevent mobbing or depressive behavior online
    Tools that support social scientists to capture, store and analyze social data on the Web
    Methods for the design and execution of online experiments for the social sciences

Other related topics are explicitly welcome.
