CALL FOR DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
——————————————————

PhD candidates from all disciplines that work on topics related to computational social science are welcome to apply for participation. The doctoral consortium is non-public and will only be open to participants that have been selected based on their applications. During the doctoral consortium, participants will receive individual feedback on their work from two experts of different areas in CSS who will join as mentors during the event. Participants will also have the opportunity to connect with other PhD candidates in the field.

Submission deadline: extended to May 20, 2019
Acceptance notification: June 10, 2019
Submit via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eurocsssymposium2019

CALL FOR DATASET CHALLENGE
————————————————

The second Dataset Challenge of the European Symposium on Societal Challenges in CSS invites researchers and to approach a common topic through a selection of datasets. The aim of this challenge is to encourage creative engagement with data from pluralistic perspectives in order to foster dialogue across disciplines. The datasets for this year’s challenge all relate to machine behavior when interacting with humans and can be found on the symposium website.

Submit your abstracts based on the suggested dataset(s) now!
