The 2nd Annual International Conference on Computational Social Science, June 23-26, 2016 at Northwestern University in the Chicago area, is an interdisciplinary event designed to engage a broad community of researchers - academics, industry experts, open data activists, government agency workers, and think tank analysts – dedicated to advancing social science knowledge through computational methods.  This event affords the opportunity to meet and discuss works in which social systems and dynamics are investigated in a quantitative way through large datasets that are either mined from various sources (e.g. social media, communication systems) or created via controlled experiments or computational modeling.
Featured speakers include: Susan Athey, Dirk Brockmann, Rosaria Conte, David Ferrucci, Sandra González-Bailón, Shawndra Hill, Michael Kearns, Jon Kleinberg, David Lazer, Alessandro Lomi, Sendhil Mullainathan, Matt Salganik, Peter Dodds, Markus Strohmaier, and Balazs Vedres.
We welcome submissions on any topic (deadline January 31, 2016), but we are especially interested in:

•                   computational social science in industry
•                   computer-assisted text analysis and natural language processing
•                   network analysis
•                   large-scale experiments
•                   causal inference and computational methods
•                   science and technology studies approaches to computational science work
•                   reproducible research
•                   practical problems in computational social science
•                   the ethics of computational research on human behavior
•                   infrastructure to facilitate industry/academic cooperation
•                   issues of inclusivity in computational fields
Faculty, graduate students, industry researchers, policy makers, and non-profit workers are all encouraged to submit data-driven research for consideration.
