Dear colleagues,


we would like to inform you that registration is now open for the 3rd International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC2S2 2017)!


This international conference brings together scientists from different disciplines and research areas to meet and discuss computational problems in the study of social systems and dynamics, as well as research questions motivated by large datasets, either extracted from real applications (e.g. social media, communication systems), or created via controlled experiments or computational models The goal of the conference is to create a broad and interdisciplinary community of researchers, including academics, tech industry workers, open data activists, government agency workers, and think tank analysts, who are committed to advancing social science knowledge through computational methods.


In addition to keynote speakers, paper and poster sessions, the conference will also include a series of training opportunities and tutorials. 



Based on the open call for submissions, we accepted 136 submissions as talks, and 114 as poster presentations.


You can find an overview of accepted talks and posters at https://ic2s2.org/2017/elements/accepted_talks.html and https://ic2s2.org/2017/elements/accepted_posters.html.
