Workshop: Demographic Research with Web and Social Media Data

 

International Conference on Web and Social Media 2019 (ICWSM)

Munich (Germany), June 11 2019

 

demogr.mpg.de/go/icwsm_2019_mpidr_workshop

 

 

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.
