-----------------------------
CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
-----------------------------

For the 2nd European Symposium on Societal Challenges in Computational Social Science we are still looking for these types of submissions:

- creative ideas to work with the datasets in our DATASET CHALLENGE (deadline September 1)

- applications to participate in our DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM (deadline September 1)

- applications to present in the SCIENCE SLAM (deadline November 1)

Authors of accepted submissions in the dataset challenge and the doctoral consortium also qualify for applications for TRAVEL GRANTS (deadline September 1).


Below you will find information on how to apply for the different formats.

-------------------------------------
CONFERENCE SCOPE
-------------------------------------
The Symposium is an interdisciplinary venue that brings together researchers from a diverse range of disciplines to contribute to the definition and exploration of the societal challenges in Computational Social Science, especially around the topics of inequality and imbalance.
We welcome submissions in the intersection of the social sciences and the computer sciences, including (a) new approaches for understanding social phenomena and addressing societal challenges, (b) improving methods for computational social science, (c) and understanding the influence of the Web and digital technologies on society.


--------------------------------
DATASET CHALLENGE
--------------------------------

Submission deadline: September 1, 2018
Submit via Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=csssymposium18

We provide links to three suggested datasets on the topic of political communication and ask participants to creatively and innovatively engage with these datasets. A jury will select the best presentation (including any created resources, such as secondary datasets or analysis code) to be awarded the very first Euro CSS Dataset Challenge Award.
The work presented at the symposium can be early stage, but should be methodically sound and provide either preliminary insights into an interesting research question or first inductively-reached conclusions of systematic patterns of bias in the dataset. These can also be on a meta-level or may be designated to positioning the work in broader theoretical contexts, e.g., about biases in the data collection.
Submissions should be abstracts of approx. 2-3 pages (maximum up to 1000 words plus references and figures).

The full call can be found here: http://symposium.computationalsocialscience.eu/2018/#data


--------------------------------
DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM
--------------------------------

Submission deadline: September 1, 2018
Submit via Easychair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=csssymposium18

Please submit a PDF file of up to approx. 1000 words with the following information:
– an abstract of the PhD thesis topic including information about the research question, applied methods and the current state of progress
– a short paragraph about the applicant’s biography
– a paragraph on open questions that the applicant would want to discuss with experts in the field

The full call can be found here: http://symposium.computationalsocialscience.eu/2018/#consortium


--------------------------------
SCIENCE SLAM
--------------------------------

Submission deadline: November 1, 2018
Submit via email: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

A Science Slam is an epic scientific event where scientists compete with short talks on their research. It's just like a poetry slam, but with science instead of poems. Slammers are completely free to do whatever they want on stage, everything is allowed including slides, games, the more creative, the better! The only two rules are: 1) The topic of the slam has to be related to data science / computational social science or to social media, online data or digital behavioral data, and 2) Presentations should not take more than 8 minutes.

The EuroCSS Science Slam will take place in the evening of December 5th in Die Wohngemeinschaft (https://www.die-wohngemeinschaft.net/en/). To present, send an email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with a short proposal of your topic for the slam and we will contact you.  We will choose the best slammer candidates, based on (i) the scientific quality, on (ii) the novelty of the topic, and on (iii) the potential for giving an engaging talk.


--------------------------------
TRAVEL GRANTS
--------------------------------
Submission deadline: September 1, 2018
Submit via email: [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

Due to the generous funding by Volkswagen Foundation we are able to offer a limited number of travel grants to researchers whose submissions are accepted for the symposium (presenters of talks or posters at the main symposium, workshop or tutorial organizers, participants of doctoral consortium and dataset challenge).

To apply for a travel grant please send an email with the subject “Travel Grant” to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> including the following information: a) your submission number in EasyChair or the title of your submitted workshop/tutorial, b) your contact details, c) your motivation for the grant application and d) whether you will still attend the symposium without a travel grant.
