ABCSS 2019 : The 4th International Workshop on Application of Big Data for Computational Social Science
Call For Papers
The 4th International Workshop on Application of Big Data for Computational Social Science (ABCSS2019 @ WI2019)
Contemporary social sciences are facing a serious paradigm shift because of the developments in computer and Internet technologies, though traditional social sciences are still very important. Big data, such as digital traces of online activities and mobility records, allows us to quantify human behavior and social phenomena at a fine-grained level, yet it is global in scale, thereby complementing experimental data and theoretical and computational simulation results. In some cases, we can even employ the methods of natural sciences, including physics, chemistry or biology, in order to analyze big data. From this perspective, we will organize the workshop of “applications of big data for computational social science.” The scopes of the workshop include the applications of big data, as well as the methods for collecting and using big data for computational social science. Moreover, theoretical frameworks and computational techniques for big data are also very important topics in our workshop. In this workshop, social sciences are not limited to sociology, economics, marketing, political science, but also include informatics, complexity science, econophysics, sociophysics, culturomics and the arts.

* Journal Special Issue
We have a special issue of Information (MDPI journal) in connection with this workshop.
Selected papers which were presented at this workshop are invited to be submitted as extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Information. Each submission to this journal issue should contain at least 50% of new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases. Note that anyone can submit to the special issue.
