SUBMISSIONS FOR POSTERS + SHORT PRESENTATIONS

------------------------------------------------



We invite submissions that describe research results or tools and 
methods for computational social science.



Exemplary topics for submissions include but are not limited to:



- Theories and models explaining the dynamics in social systems, 
networks, communities and teams

- Studies of political discourse and spread of opinions, attitudes and 
information on the web

- Studies of cultures and conflicts, segregation, discrimination, 
prejudice via new kinds of data

- Social-/Computational aspects of health, life style, sports and diet

- Social-/Computational aspects of human movement, mobility and urban 
planning

- Mixed methods and techniques (e.g. obtrusive/unobtrusive methods)

- Methods to deal with biased, selective and incomplete observational 
data on the Web

- Tools that detect and prevent mobbing or depressive behavior online

- Tools that support social scientists to capture, store and analyze 
social data on the Web

- Methods for the design and execution of online experiments for the 
social sciences



Other related topics are explicitly welcome.





---------------------------

PRESENTATION FORMATS

---------------------------



Based on the submitted abstracts, submissions may be accepted as posters 
and/or short presentations. The standard format will be a poster 
presentation. As this is a single track conference, only few submissions 
can be selected for short plenary presentations of approx. 10-15 minutes.





---------------------------

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

---------------------------



Submissions should be 1-2 page abstracts (up to approx. 1000 words) 
summarizing the work to be presented. We encourage researchers to also 
submit mature work that has already been published and/or submit 
work-in-progress. Accepted submissions will be non-archival, i.e. there 
are no proceedings. We may however discuss options for publishing 
selected submissions after the conference (e.g. as a journal special 
issue or edited collection).



Submissions will mostly be evaluated based on relevance and the 
potential to stimulate interesting discussions.



Authors are kindly requested to submit a PDF file via the easychair 
submission system for the event: 
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cssws16

related issues.
