*Workshop: Demographic Research with Web and Social Media Data*

International Conference on Web and Social Media 2019 (ICWSM)

Munich (Germany), June 11 2019

The spread of the internet and online communities provide unprecedented
opportunities for studying global population dynamics such as fertility,
mortality, migration, and health. Internet users do not only leave ‘digital
traces’ of their existence - the online world also influences their
behaviour. Computational social scientists have long employed innovative
methodologies and data sources to study social phenomena. Demographers have
recently moved into the ‘digital realm’, but collaboration between
demographers and computationally-oriented scientists remains limited. This
workshop aims to foster dialogue and knowledge exchange between these two
communities by focusing on the applications and implications of web and
social media data for demographic research.*Deadline for submitting
abstract/papers: March 22 2019.*
