COMPTEXT 2024 : The Sixth International and Interdisciplinary Conference on the Quantitative and Computational Analysis of Textual Data
Call For Papers
COMPTEXT is an international community of quantitative text analysis and computational social science scholars in political science, international relations and beyond. COMPTEXT 2024 in Amsterdam follows in the footsteps of previous conferences in Budapest (2018), Tokyo (2019) and Innsbruck (online, 2020), Dublin (2022), and Glasgow (2023). COMPTEXT conferences offer ample opportunities to network with computational scholars, to exchange technological knowledge of computational methods, and to obtain useful feedback on ongoing research.
For COMPTEXT 2024 in Amsterdam we are seeking paper submissions that:
- rely on image, video, text or other digital trace data to study social and political phenomena broadly construed
- propose or evaluate new computational methods or tools
- seek to make contributions at the intersection of social science and computer science
We accept both substantive and methodological papers for presentation: substantive papers may be on any studies in social sciences or humanities that utilize computational methods; methodological papers may describe new computational methods, tools and approaches. Note that conference proceeding will not be published, as the conference format follows social science practices.
In keeping with our tradition, ahead of the conference a series of methods training tutorials will be held for registered participants. Courses will be offered for both beginner and advanced level participants.
Submission of Paper Abstracts:
Abstracts of max. 250 words and three substantive and/or methods-related keywords, should be submitted by Wednesday 20 December 2023.
Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 16 February, 2024.
The registration deadline is 15 March, 2024.
Please submit your paper at https://forms.gle/VrzhEzJEcTNdM3RN9
Please be advised that a conference fee will be charged for participants with accepted papers.
