Atlanta Computational Social Science Workshop
November 21, 2014 at Georgia Tech
Schedule
 
Description

As computing grows ever more embedded into daily life, computational techniques can now be applied to shed insight on basic social science questions. At the same time, the increasingly social aspect of computing means that technologists must wrestle with and understand social science principles. The emerging cross-disciplinary field of computational social science addresses these challenges and opportunities, combining computational methods with social science theory and research.

On November 21, 2014, Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology will host the second-annual workshop for exchanging research ideas in this exciting new area. The program will include distinguished visiting speakers, oral presentations from local researchers, an interactive poster session, and breakout sessions to allow graduate students and faculty across area to meet and exchange ideas. Participation is open, and free to all who register to attend.
